Redirect me to Random Website & Include Repetitive Self Opening Pop Ups
Hi, whenever I open a website, most often a dictionary website like cambridge and etc, it always try to redirect me to random website and almost pop up ads appeared repetitively. I tried to write a word on the search box but it redirect me to these web without my permission. When I close it and try to write again, it transfer me to new windows and redirect me again like that. I'm terribly frustrated cause it waste a lot of my time. Try blocking them through the Option Block in Mozzila left menu but still didn't work. Please help!
Note: I'm pretty much blind in this kind of thing, please tell me exactly what to see or to check please. Thanks.
