Accidentally touched a porn ad. Do I need to burn my computer?

Posted

Accidentally touched a porn ad, after I touched it I could close firefox, the ad brought me to another page and kept me from closing out so I just shut down my computer. Then I logged back on and uninstalled/reinstalled firefox.

Is this enough or is there more to it?

here' a link to the ad - go to at your own risk [Unneeded link removed by moderator.]

Please, don't post such links as others could end up traped as well.

A way out of a trap page is to (force it if needed) Close Firefox. Wait about 20 seconds for Firefox to finish closing. Right-click on the Firefox icon and select Open New Window. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Sometimes this works. If it opens, close it by Menu > File > Exit. This will flush out that web page from the Session Store.

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


edit: Ad blocker as Popup blocker is built in.
