I have every adblocker on earth, it seems, and now sites have found a workaround by forcing ads to open in new tabs. Is there some way to stop these? I've gone back to ABP because UBlock was too aggressive and causing me problems.

You may have ad / mal-ware. Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
