Why, when I get on the local news CBS website, it loads, then the screen disappears until they either write or read something to my computer and I can't stop it

While on the yahoo home page, I click on the local CBS website for new info. The page loads okay, but then, it shuts the whole browser screen off and I can't get it back on, nor can I use "control-alt-delete" to stop this. It seems like they take over my computer and they have control until they do what ever it is they are doing - maybe writing to my computer or reading cookies or both. I have no control other than shutting off the power. I can't right click on the menu bar icon for Firefox and shut it down there, either. I have onlyh run into it on this site, I think.
