hello thekev99, you may have malicious addons present. please try these steps:

  1. reset firefox (this will keep your bookmarks and passwords)
  2. afterwards go to firefox > addons > extensions and in case there are still extensions listed there, disable them.
  3. finally run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner to make sure that adware isn't present in other places of your system as well.

I used Malwarebytes and it says it did find and remove lots of issues, but it didn't remove the Offers4U. Also, I went into both Control Panel/Unistall Programs, as well as, Firefox/Add-ons/Extensions and and Offers4U is not listed.

What else can I do to remove this thing? Thank you.

I also found this where it is suggested to uninstall software you don't know and use Adwcleaner run as administrator among other tools.
