The Browser by itself doesn't infect your computer. If you posted the message Defender mentioned that would help others see what it was referring to. If the sites your going to have malware imbedded there nothing the Browser can do unless the A/V catches it before it loads onto your computer. And without a link others can't verify what your asking about. And where did you download the Firefox browser?
You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no
Run most or all of the listed free to use malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
