Hello @brasileiro Welcome to the Webroot Community, I have not heard of this issue and I am running Firefox as well. Sounds a bit strange. Do you have the latest Firefox?

Please have a look here at the PC User Guide: Managing Quarantine Also I would Submit a Support Ticket and see what they have to say about these Security Holes in Firefox. Support Ticket or Contact Webroot Support. Hope this helps?

I thank you for your response: and checked on firefox latest update (69.0/64 bit) on my device, and its up to date ! So I am safe/holes is plugged!? That leads to another Question; how will I know for sure... Webroot system scan/reports are activated automatic by Webroot or is it something we can do our self...I wished I could have printed the warning, but only option we have is multiple page report. It would have been nice to be able to open the warnings for detail. To be very truthful I have got to the point that I do not trust anyone totally: Firefox, Edge, Google, Search engines...Etc. I am trying to run my devices as safe as possible. I do trust Webroot/support/community ! Thank You !🚢
