Firefox Issue With Twitter

I don't have a Twitter account, but I read them. But for the last couple of months, when I go into one, I get a big Twitter window that says, "Don't miss what's happening," and I have to x out of it. I get that window every time I go into someone's Twitter.

Also, if I click on a tweet to read the comments, that window comes up again, and when I x out of it, I get back to the main twitter page, not the individual tweet with the comments.

Also, if I click on something that's embedded in a tweet - like a news article - same thing happens. I get that big window. I x out of it, but again it takes me back to the main twitter page. So I can't read the article. (I could go to that particular Tweet's link, and read the comments or article, but I shouldn't have to do that.)

I was always able to read the comments and click embedded articles within a tweet. I never had to sign in - never had a Twitter account.

This is not happening at all in Chome or Edge, only Firefox, so it's a Firefox issue. What's going on?

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for a good ad blocker.

It's not an ad. It's a Twitter window. Something you might get after deleting your cookies, and then doesn't pop up until you clear them out again.

Something (the pop up?) is blocking me from accessing the tweet itself on its own page and the embedded articles in a tweet.

Again, it's not happening on Chrome or Edge.

I was wrong about something. The same thing is happening on on my iphone. So maybe it's not a Firefox issue and the issue is on Twitter's end. I contacted them weeks ago, it wasn't easy and they never got back to me.
