Using Firefox v 42.0, Windows 7 on a laptop. A news site has suddenly started attaching adverts to numerous words in text. If my pointer happens to pass over these words, an advert opens automatically. Can I disable this text recognition or turn off links? This is a very recent change, either to firefox or the news site.
