also go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.

It's definitely not a Firefox issue. You need to uninstall adware that displays these popups, see this:


There's also this great utility called AdwCleaner which I think may help you too.
