A few days ago I started getting full page spam messages when looking at threads in one forum only. I have to keep backing out or closing out of Firefox. Initially FF blocked them, but not anymore. Norton never blocked them.

These messages only come up when using one FF profile, not another. They also do not show up when using a Chromebook, so I presume the problem is on my end.

I have cleared all cookies & cache and did a complete scan with Norton, Malwarebytes, & AdwCleaner. Even restored Windows 7 back to an earlier time. But none of this helped.

They are full page messages & say they're from AT&T, Walmart, or Visa. However the addresses all start out with: happy.luckyparkclub.com/………..

Sometimes the messages appears right away & sometimes it takes a few minutes.

I cleared FF cookies, went back to the forum, & then looked at the cookies again. I noticed that happy.luckyparkclub.com and dbmtrk.xyz both appeared in the cookies list at the same time, 23 seconds. The forum cookie was time stamped at 22 seconds.

If I look at the forum using a different FF profile there is no problem & neither of these 2 cookies are there.

If I open a New Private Window in the problem profile then I don't get the messages either, at least not yet.

What does the Private Window NOT access that the regular window does?

Which profile folder or file could be causing the problem?

Thanks for any suggestions.
