I've updated to Firefox and now get the unwanted pop ups and redirections that wasn't a problem before.

The pop ups were not on the old system and seems attached to some site I open, opening multi-site. I might have to stop usingFfirefox, if this is not fixed.


Hello jgibbs99, you could get deceived by a malicious Web site by downloading a fake update - a true firefox update will contain never this kind of noise you describe! Furthermore updates are managed in-house by firefox if you are asked to download and run a .exe file to update to firefox, it will be false (you can manually check the updates in firefox by going to firefox > help > about firefox).

Please, try the following steps:

  1. Reset firefox (this will keep your bookmarks and passwords)
  2. then go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or of potentially unwanted software there (sort the programs installed for their installation date to see what he got recently installed).
  3. Finally, run a full scan of your system with security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.
