I'm facing this problem for last 4-5 months. Every website start with http:// showing me unnecessary ads. In those ads corner, there is a message called: "Powered by offers wizard". I use a family pc so don't know what is going wrong. I have used REFRESH FIREFOX and also uninstalled every plugin and theme but it remains same. Please note, websites start with https:// don't have this problem.

hi, this sure sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your pc.

  1. please go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc).
  2. also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.
  3. finally, run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner, which are specialised in adware and browser hijackers.
