Everytime I click on the search box in Amazon now, randomly a car ad pops up in a new window. Or, sometimes I have a window open, like this one, and I click on a box to start typing my info in and another window pops open with some random advertisement. How do I stop this. It's so annoying.

Also, Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for a good ad / pop-up blocker.
