I have repeatedly used 'Block Site' to preclude the intruders as their activities frequently void whatever I am attempting to do, but the intruders still get through. Their addresses are:

java-updating-now.com/ca

update-browser.org/firefox/

browseupdate.com/firefox/index.html?aff_sub=s0001311

Also my Firefox is frequently diverted to the following sites without my permission or choice:

pressroomvip.com/hunger-games-premiere-jennifer-lawrence/?utm_source=brt&utm_medium=whtron&utm_campaign=hungerca&utm_nooverride=1

watch32.com/ads/movies-online/captain-phillips.html

My version of Opera is not affected by these intruders and I am considering not continuing to use Firefox.

Thank you for any assistance.

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by malware on your pc. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and run a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and different other tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.

Thank you, Philipp; your helpful suggestions [particularly, adwcleaner] appear to have worked - no 'intruders' for two days.
