My tab was open to a wunderground.com or intellicast.com page and then this pop-up from cardexpirationdate.club/us_amazon_amazon500 appeared in the middle of the screen and all the rest of the Firefox screen was greyed out. I couldn't access any of the 3 tabs I had open. The pop-up wanted me to click OK so I could claim a prize. I closed Firefox (double click home and swipe app away) and restarted it and the pop-up was still there. How can this happen with all the pop-up protection and tracking protection had turned on in Firefox? I finally de-installed it.
