As I'm browsing a website, any website, I get redirected to a happy luck club sire congratulating me on being chosen for this or that. Some type of adware obviously. Can't find it, malwarebytes can't find it, Adware Cleaner can't find it. I don't see it under Firefox extensions, plugins or anything like that. So I've run out of options on how to get rid of it permanently.

How can I protect against a malicious Javascript exploit?

For the second time in a few months, my browser pops up a new tab with a big red page claiming my computer has been infected and all kinds of badness is happening. And Windows itself becomes completely locked up. I needed to take it down for a hard boot. Upon recovering my system and looking at my browser history, I see that there is a huge pile of calls to some purported service: arrideral.info -- so the computer lock-up would seem to have been due to some (assumed) Javascript running in some site which is running the multiple calls and bogging down Windows to the point where it is unresponsive. Obvious malicious intent. How can I avoid this? (BTW I got this info from wa-com.com: "Arriederal.info is registered since 10 September 2019. Arriederal.info IP is 167.114.45.229. Arriederal.info is hosted in Canada (Montréal, Quebec). " )

AVG keeps telling me I have 2 poorly rated browser extensions. One, IDF Online Identity Protection Tools, I want to keep and ignore the message. The other, SpecialSearchOffer, I've no idea how it was added, but clicking AVG's Remove doesn't eliminate it.

I've posted this in the Firefox section as I did not see a section for queries relating to the Mozilla support website (support.mozilla.org) itself. Every time I visit a page on support.mozilla.org on my Windows machine, Bitdefender is declaring that it is blocking a web threat. The threat in question is surveygizmobeacon.s3.amazonaws.com/beaconconfigs/[large string of letters and numbers].json

I am only getting this alert when I visit a page on support.mozilla.org.

Can anyone advise on what is causing this?
