Thank you for posting on Mozilla Support. We value and appreciate you as a user.
You must have something installed causing it to pop up everytime. Is this SweetIM?
I would also like to advise you to check your computer for malware; See below.
You can try some of the following programs to scan for malware:
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility
- Microsoft Security Essentials (A good permanent anti-virus if you don't already have one)
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.
