First of all, and although possibly not related to your problem, I will remind you that the version of Firefox you are using at the moment as been discontinued and is no longer supported. Furthermore, it has known bugs and security problems. I urge you to update to the latest version of Firefox, for maximum stability, performance, security and usability. You can get it for free, as always, at

As for your problem, a screenshot of the popups would be helpful, but you may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database. - Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - SuperAntispyware - Spybot Search & Destroy - Ad-Aware Free - Windows Defender: Home Page ..........

how can I prevent those dammed "CURVE" ads appearing on almost all websites I visit whilst browsing. They are extremely irritating and I suspect that the annoying "google" has something to do with it. I would also like to totally remove all google software from my computer but have had no success to date. but am certainly no computer geek - can anyone help ??
