    Downloading firefox - the firefox install file - Firefox Setup 1.0.1 gives an alarm as a dual extention.

    This is surely a false alarm - just download the firefox setup file ( http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ ) scan it and see.

    Hi timnicebutdim, ;)

    It's no issue, TDS reads/sees the periods "." as extensions. So to TDS "Firefox Setup 1.0.1.exe" has three ... .0 / .1 / .exe ... The alarm only services a warning - precaution; Alerting the user to investigate further. Which would be more than handy should a user have a file like Happy_Face.jpg.exe onboard.
