Mozilla haves multiple privacy and security products but i don't see a antivirus product like avg antivirus, avast or mcafee. it should be a great idea if mozilla also make a antivirus program.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
Being better than mcafee shouldn't be very hard at least.
Thank you for your suggestion @Jeppie. However, I personally believe that Antivirus software are a scam. Wouldn't be better to run an operating system that doesn't get easily infected or crashes?
I've been running Linux for more than a decade and malware has become an "alien" term to me. I also have a Macbook, and macOS has so many security features, that installing an antivirus would be a waste of space.
What Mozilla could do, is to partner with Bitdefender or another brand, and maybe give them a Mozilla Badge of Approval for Internet Security.
Remember that malware is a business, and some companies profiting from it don't want the problem to be resolved.
At 2023 malware and viruses, trojans and worms present at most all web sites you visit, we need the Embeded Antivirus in FireFox to be secured and up!

@f33dIf you're in Canada, you're in luck, because when it comes to Web Browsing Security, you could activate the Canadian Shield.
In fact, Mozilla has a partnership with CIRA.
