Scam website

For the past month, when reading news on the msn site, my page has been hijacked and I have to close Firefox and reopen the broser to get rid of the page. Attached is an image of the page that opened tonight 8/17/2019. How do I stop this from happening?

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.


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.
