When I Try to get on this site from Firefox, I keep getting a Download prompt for "Pipe Burst" or something... And it auto closes the tab when this happens too.
Not sure what it is referencing to but I am not downloading it.

    I used to use Firefox to browse this site; it failed me. I used IE now.

    I use Firefox for everything... I use ME and Chrome as a back up.
    The problem seems to affect Fire Fox hmm?

    I use Firefox and never once got that. Make sure to clear your Browser cache/history as the very first step, and maybe reinstall Firefox if you think your installation may be at risk, since those kinds of popups tend to appear if you've ever downloaded sketchy stuff. Since Firefox can also have some weird moments, if you're comfortable using a more technical version of it, Firefox Nightly can be a good alternative to resolve the issue.

    definitely don't download that. sounds like u got a infection that's hijacking your browser to get u to DL Trojans and such. Sadly you can get those hijacks just by bening connected to the internet and don't necessarily have to visit any sketchy sites. running a detailed scan with your AV may/may not find it immediately.

    One of the problems of Firefox is that it pretty much is open to any type of download software of browser extensions/plugins. As others have suggested, it may be best to uninstall and install a new version of Firefox to see if that helps. Try to disable access by any unnecessary software or extensions from being downloaded. Also make sure to do a scan to make sure you haven't had any infections into your computer.

    Be wary when trying to download or venturing to 3rd party downloading sites via Firefox.

    Moving forward you might want to set-up another local standard windows account on your computer strictly for viewing internet "artwork", and downloading fan-made computer game experience enhancement "files" and use a specific browser only configured for that account.
