Firefox plagued by virus s0.2mdn.net -- how do you remove it?

Inserita

I am running Firefox on Windows 7. On a number of sites the icon box to the left of the current URL gets an icon that is circular with the cardinal points of a compass like figure. A dialogue box appears emanating from that icon and asks the user if he/she wants to share hs/her location with s0.2mdn.net? I cannot get rid of this and think it is adware.

The sites that purport to get rid of s0.2mdn.net are very ambiguous. I did follow their advice and found that there were no programs that contained s0.2mdn.net in their names. However, I did find a solution to my problem which may or may not be a virus. Go to START and type "popup" in the ALL PROGRAMS box. One of the answers is "Block or Allow Pop-ups" and you should click on this one. Then a box will come up with a number of tabs, select the PRIVACY tab and check the box NEVER ALLOW WEBSITES to REQUEST LOCATION. See the attached image of this ....
