I get an annoying ad at the bottom of my screen. When I hit "disable", it shows up as a sidebar. How do I get rid of these annoying ads?

I have looked and haven't found anything on this subject. I'm using Firefox 16.0.2. on a Windows 7 system. I get these ads in a banner covering the bottom of my screen. If I click the "X" button, it will disappear for a little bit and reappear. If I click the "disable" button, it'll appear as a side bar and it doesn't have a "disable" button on it, just an "about this ad" button.

If I click it's "X" button, it reappears as a banner at the bottom of the screen. While the ad is in the side bar position, I get this annoying banner at the bottom saying "related: ".

How do I disable this? It's annoying and I get enough ads on the websites I search.

My machine is Top of the range (my Company builds them so it had better be :) ) Amd 1100t , 8gb ram , Windows 7 64 bit etc, etc... The is not a hardware problem , but a software problem with FF...Any help would be appreciated as I hate using IE 8 for anything at all :( but I have to keep it on my machines just to run my remote security cameras at my Computer shop ???

Original question...as question length is limited ...not very bright that limit by the way :(

As I own a Computer company I am fairly computer literate but cannot find a plugin that allows this to work in Firefox.... but I would have expected it to work in the new Firefox :( All the best, Brett :)

For a few weeks now, when I am browsing the internet all of a sudden a new tab will open, and it is either something from "wartune" which I have NEVER played, or the one where it tells you your current firefox is outdated.

I have ran a malwarebytes and AVG scan on my computer and the problem still persists. I have went into my add-ons to see if I saw anything suspicious in there and even went through my programs and uninstalled anything I think should not be there, with the problem still there and beginning to become very annoying!

Can anyone help please?

I use mozilla to open internet and suddenly in the search engine box at top it brings me to Babylon.com which I have never seen before. I uninstalled the program through the control panel but it still appears when I open mozilla. I do not trust it and I think it is affecting my hotmail as when I sign in it will not allow mw to delete messages or signout using the signout button which I always wish to do. I do not like to just close page. The sign in page keeps flashing as connecting at the top left of the computer, rather than just saying connected.

I had to replace my motherboard and install a new operating system on a new hard drive. Windows 7.

The old hard drive has windows 7 OEM and would not boot with the new MB.

I need to recover the bookmarks from the old HD which is connected to the new MB.

I can access the folders. I just can't find the bookmarks. 

I need them to be complete because I used hints in the bookmarks to be able to sign in to some sights that I can't remember.

Help Please!
