and installing it, Eset Internet Security 12.1.34.0 detects the following trojan:

See this: https://forum.eset.com/topic/19491-firefoxvisualelementsmanifestxml-generikhbkpftf-trojan/?do=findComment&comment=95058 . Eset pushed a module update about a hour ago; at least in the U.S., to fix the issue.

If you're still getting the Eset alert detection, manually perform an Eset update.

OK,

with signature update 19319, I installed Firefox 66.0.5 again, and now it seems to be clean.
