Firefox keeps attempting to access a web site with an unwanted application. The site is mv.outbrain.com and my virus software keeps asking to block the site. The popup is now becoming a nuisance how do I stop it or delete the reference to it

When you see the pop up, us the bullseye (see screenshot) from the menu bar in process explorer to show you what process is generating the pop up. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/process-explorer

Here are some video examples of how to use the tool. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=process+explorer+bullseye

It is unclear to me how the process is identified. What is associated with outbrain?
