How to remove hyper-links from Firefox ?


My OS is Windows 7 with Firefox 3.6. when I open anything in Firefox, there are blue double underlined keywords that will popup up to FindStuff.com or Gamevance. Side by side to Internet Explorer with an identical page with Firefox, IE does not have any hyperlinks. How can you help to find and remove hyperlinks from Firefox?
