Why when I click on a item or a spot on a web page dose another tab open up that has nothing to do with what I am clicking on?

Posted

The new tab goes to a website that has nothing to do with the site I am working with.

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by 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 run 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.

Some links go thru some sort of traffic control system. It may send you where you want to go, or someplace else. This could also happen if the link itself is no good.
