There is this window that pops up in the corner of FireFox that I have encountered before but now whenever I click an option it will not go away. I have to go to the preview windows on the FireFox icon and close it that way, but it keeps appearing every 20 minutes or so. I'm getting very frustrated since I can't seem to make it go away and I would like to know if I can block it.
I know it isn't my anti-virus because the window for it specifically appears as FireFox.
I have restarted my computer a few times as well and it didn't fix it.

Here is a screen shot of the window.
Sorry, that is not a message from Firefox.
Install, update, and run these programs in this order. They are listed in order of efficacy.
(Not all programs detect the same Malware, so you may need to run them all to solve your problem.)
These programs are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have.
Note: If your Malware infection is bad enough and you are mis-directed to URL's other than what is posted, you may have to use a different PC to download these programs and use a USB stick to transfer them to the afflicted PC.

If these don't find it or can't clear it, post in one of these forums for specialized malware removal help:
I have Kalpersky as my antivirus and it is completely up to date and I've run the scan about 3-4 times and it is still there whenever I open up FireFox. No other browser has this issue, just FireFox.
Anti-virus applications don't detect Malware. You need Anti-Malware applications to detect Malware.
Actually, Kalpersky does both, anti-virus is just easier to say.
Anyway, I just uninstalled and reinstalled FireFox to fix the problem. Guess I had to solve it on my own after all. Thanks I guess.
