There is a blue advertisement tap showing up in my browser on several web pages. Such as sharebuilder and some other ones, it recently started showing as upgraded to the new edition of Firefox. It list on the tab "Drop Down Deals and Coupons" this is happening on other sites as well. It hides under the right hand side of the browser until you surf! I spoke to sharebuilder about this since when l Iog-in to their site and they claim it's not happening on their side. What is happening here if you know? Is it the browser?


Thank you, David

hello who7157 - please heave a look into tools > addons > extesions & remove all suspicious entries there (toolbars, adware, things that you have not installed intentionally or don't know what purpose it serves).

please also do a full scan of your system with the security software already in place and/or a different tool like the free version of malwarebytes since such ads can be a sign of malware on the pc.
