Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems
Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs.
You need to use all programs because each detects different malware.

I too have this, just started this morning.
On top of all web pages, I see new banner, with adverts, 4 pictures on left hand side then large wide animated gif with x to close.
Where has this come from and how can I remove it perminately.....
Did you try the Malware check that cor-el recommended?
