Periodiacally, I am quickly & unexpectedly rediected to a screen that says, "Congratulations, You've Won......"
I frequently am redirected to a new screen that says, "Congratulations, You've Won ......" It is from Testables.net, which I looked up and it is somehow related to Firefox. I deleted my Firefox, which was my primary browser, and have not had an incident like I mentiones above since. I am back to IE. I like Firefox, but will not reinstall it until I can find out how to get rid of testables.net

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your pc. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and do a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and/or a different tool like the free version of malwarebytes.
I don't now if you have resolved this testables.net issue but I had it recently.
It attacked about 5 of my sites - mostly Wordpress. This malware is browser independent so not specific to Firefox. This is the exact script that causes it - You can find it usually Just before the close </head> tag in your header.php file.
For Wordpress users download the "Antivirus" Plugin its quite good at sniffing out this particular malware code.
I hope this helps!
