How can I prevent redirecting to SPAM websites?

Is there any way to prevent a website from redirecting me to a SPAM website? Some websites will do that even if you right click on a link that you wanted to open in a new tab. Then after the website you were on redirects you to an annoying useless website, and you return to the original website is the only time that link you wanted to open will work.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

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

I don't, they're porn sites. Okay? They figured out a trick to do that.

Then that's their problem not a Browser issue. You should then contact their WebMaster and file a compliant with them there.

It does it on a few different sites. I can block some ads and stuff with the Adblock Plus add-on. I think I found the section of code that triggers that BS to happen, but IDK how to use that add-on.
