I can't get rid of pop-up ads, even though Firefox isn't allowing them to open, a new screen appears.

Posted

As of a few days ago, almost every web site I visit, after the page opens, another screen opens with firefox asking to allow another site to open. It is an ad of some sort as I have opened 1 or 2 to check them out. I've been on a site with a catalog with multiply pages to go thru and every time I hit the next page, another pop up. I've checked off the options box to stop pop up's, but that doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Chosen solution

I uninstalled firefox, then re-installed it. That seemed to fix the problem
