After an automatic update numerous floating adds have appeared and migrate to other web pages that I go to. I can find no way to either close them out or stop them from appearing. Before when you right clicked on the add an x close button would appear and you could close the add. Now nothing. How do you either stop them or close them once they appear?

hello, this may be a problem possibly caused by adware/malware on your pc. please 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 and do a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and different other tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.
I use both avira and spybot and run them regularly for malware and they seem to be working well. I thank you for your help and will try removing the extensions like you suggested. I only have the original fire fox tool bar on my browser. Thanks again.
