I keep getting a new tab asking me to update Firefox & JAVA but I already have the most current versions. I also am getting ads on the homepage
After updating the most current Firefox I now get Ads on the home page that I can't get rid of even with the "X" box on the window. I have to shut down Firefox and start over to get anywhere. I didn't have this problem before the update. I also had a change to the new tab/page feature. I used to click for a new tab and a series of boxes would show where I've been so I can perhaps select one. That feature has changed and I now get a tab/page that says it is owned by AVG. Where is my old page

If it opens in a new tab it is likely fake.
Can you post a link of it, you may also want to check for malware.
You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.
