Hello.

First of all, and although possibly not related to your problem, I will remind you that the version of Firefox you are using at the moment as been discontinued and is no longer supported. Furthermore, it has known bugs and security problems. I urge you to update to the latest version of Firefox, for maximum stability, performance, security and usability. You can get it for free, as always, at www.getfirefox.com.

As for your problem, a screenshot of the popups would be helpful, but you may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database.

how can I prevent those dammed "CURVE" ads appearing on almost all websites I visit whilst browsing. They are extremely irritating and I suspect that the annoying "google" has something to do with it. I would also like to totally remove all google software from my computer but have had no success to date. but am certainly no computer geek - can anyone help ??
