Pop-up in Tabs

Posted

I think it may be completely random, that when I click to go to another tab or to a link to somewhere else, a new tab appears. The tab that appears usually has some business, health and job things. Sometimes it even has Google on it O.O

I've tried two pop-up blockers from the add-ons. Sadly it didn't work.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

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.
