I believe an extension is creating unwanted pop ups on my phone. Can someone identify the extension referenced in the attached image?

These pop ups started 3-4 months ago. I've tried uninstalling what I thought may be the extension causing this, but it still persists. The last couple of days, I've been receiving the error message in the screenshot and both times it appeared to have been caused by a pop up.

Hi

I believe that the add-on you are using is "HTTPS Everywhere".

Hi Seburo. Thanks for the information. If that's the case, I doubt it's what's causing the pop ups. I'll disable it and report back.

Hi Ron

No problem, glad I could help.

Is it just this page where you are seeing this issue? The problem may be with the site, rather than with Firefox for Android or an add-on that you have installed.

No, there are several "fake" pages that pop up, all from the same source I'm sure.
