Whats with all the pop-ups and ads and new windows and tabs? I have popups blocked but I still keep getting new windows popping up and new tab
The popups wont stop. No matter what I do I get ads on the top or sides, and when I am clicking on something in my school website I keep getting new windows and new tabs with crap.

Look under the Pop-ups not being blocked section.
P.S. Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.
You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Also, disable the TubeSaver extension here:
orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons > Extensions category
You may need to exit and restart Firefox before that change takes effect.
You should also remove HKCU\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions [Tubesaver@istqt.co] and other registry entries so that TubeSaver extension can be removed rather than disabled.
