I happened on a page:

And it immediately began "downloading an app" and I quit the page before it could get far, but, obviously, that doesn't mean it stopped. However, now Firefox is acting a little wiggy, and I'm concerned it might have downloaded something that's affecting the browser. Was trying to read about "capital one shopping malware," and pages wouldn't open when any links on the search results were clicked, etc.

Is this a known issue? Resolutions offered?
