I'm running 96.0.3 on a fully patched Win 10 Pro system - both O/S and programs. When Firefox is running I'm getting these pop-up error messages randomly with changing content. They stay on screen for some seconds and then go away. Message states it's from (via) 5.back2yard.biz. I put that in my hosts file and I'm still getting them. My network is a cable modem hooked to Xfinity and then cable connected to another fully newer patched router. All addresses are 10. range. I ran both a Malwarebytes scan and a Windows Security scan - both are clean.

I'm unable to upload a small image after a hour so I'll give up on that right now.

I need to re-post this question as, although it has been asked previously, that session is now closed. It only started happening recently, but I'm not sure whether to blame the latest FireFox version, 96, or Windows 10, 21H2. I also run Avast and MalwareBytes AVs.
