Have I picked up some malware?

Hello

During the last few days when using the net, I get a window coming up.

I have no idea what it refers to, but it is asking me to install and extension.

You can see the window here: www.edenworkshops.com/pc.jpg

Can anyone advise me what I should do?

Thank you

Richard

Firebug seems legit if using Firefox.

Go to Tools.Options.Content. and make sure Java script is Enabled.

By the sound of it you use Firefox and the website that you are visting at the time (your own website maybe) uses PageSpeed (click here) which requires Firebug (click here)).

Not sure if you really need it and why you get the pop up for it.have you looked in your add-ons to see if anything in there.

Maybe someone else can give you advice on how to remove it if not wanted.

When I use google webmaster tools, the page speed function doesn't work.

I checked out firebug and it seems to be legitimate software...so if I install the firebug thing does that mean I will be able to use the page speed function in GWMT?

Thank you

Richard
