SP2 and FireFox should get along nice.
A lot of people use that combination.

It's not stupid to ask. It's stupid to run into something without looking. :tazz:

The warning describes what happened.

The program BOBlitzInstall.exe was executed and tried to connect to that site it mentions.
In these cases they always choose what Windows has down as your default browser. (In your case Firefox)

Whether this was malicious or justified is up to you to decide.
It could just have been checking for updates.
