Unlike with Internet Explorer, evey web page that opens has links to what I call 'trash' sites which then you have to delete to work the page you requested.

Unlike with Internet Explorer, evey web page that opens has links to what I call 'trash' sites which automatically opens instead of the page you are requesting; you have to delete the page before you work the page you requested. If your lucky that is and you do not accidently hit a hyperlink that takes you somewhere else.

I repeatedly get a popup "suggesting" that I update Yahoo. I have deliberately removed Yahoo from Firefox! Does anyone know what this scam is and how to stop it

I detest Yahoo in all its forms, and have removed it from Firefox any time it has intruded. I consider it to be nothing but a browser hijacker. However, I repeatedly get… (read more)

I detest Yahoo in all its forms, and have removed it from Firefox any time it has intruded. I consider it to be nothing but a browser hijacker.

However, I repeatedly get this popup[ with the "suggestion" that I update Yahoo!

There is no "decline" button. Not even a simple "no, thanks." The window intrudes over the screen in any [program I open until I manually close it from the task bar.

Avast scans find no virus. Malwarebytes scans come back clean. Adware cleaner finds nothing.

What is this wretched thing, where does it come from, and how can I prevent it?

I am constantly nagged by ad-ons thanking me for using their product. Worst of these is "Colourful Tabs" which seems to open a thank you tab almost every day. Is there a way to prevent the tab opening other than removing the ad-on? I have no problem with their wanting to maintain a relationship with me but a simple email once a month would suffice.

Laptop; Windows 7

A while ago, Ads by Capricornus began to show up in many of the sites I go on. I disabled and removed all the add-ons and extensions I didn't download or recognize. Didn't work. I refreshed FireFox about 3 times. Didn't work. I uninstalled FireFox, cleaned up my program files by control panel and through file explorer, reinstalled FireFox. No dice, it was still infected. Even when I don't have the browser open, my laptop will glitch when I'm using Word or Paint or some other program. I restarted my laptop on safety mode and did similar things from the last try. I saw that my firewall or security whatever it was couldn't be set back to its defaults. Not sure why.

Also, many sites I used to use before, I'm not able to access as much because of some security warning that literally just states exactly this: 'ILLEGAL_&_DANGEROUS_CONTENT_BLOCKED'. That's the whole page. Not sure what's going on there either.

I guess that's all I have to offer in info of what I've done to try and fix it.

Any suggestions?

When I use the second tab or open an additional tab to use and I click on that page or the scroll bar a new tab/window opens up with what I'm trying to view, but the page I just opened goes to something else. (99.9% of the time) Do I have some sort of virus? Because I have AVG and it is not showing any issues.
