Why do new tabs open behind my main tabthat have nothing to do with what i click on, It's always an advertisment or a video that starts playing behind main wind

Posted

When i click on a link it will open that page but it will also open a new tab behind it, it's always a smaller window that's an advertisement and usually has a video that starts playing as I'm watching a video on the main page. Sometimes it opens more than one tab with the same results and I do have the no pop ups checked in settings. It's driving me crazy.
