I recently joined some hideous dating sites and then decided very quickly they were not for me - I deleted my accounts - yet these hideous sites keep opening up tabs on my Firefox by themselves - advertising their sites. They just don't want to let you go after they get your information and are super aggressive about their lame products. I have emailed them - spoken to them on the phone - deleted them manually from my browser history - have listed them in the Firefox BLOCK section (Privacy and Security) - and yet these God damn sites keep opening. So I am assuming adware infection (although I have no idea?) I am not a computer wiz - I work on the computer and know my programs but do not know much about how the computer functions. Does anyone have an answer on how I can PERMANENTLY eliminate these horrible sites forever. I just want them gone - gone - gone - they are annoying and time consuming to keep deleting!!! I have used Firefox for a zillion years and have always liked it - but if I can't get rid of these insidious sites - I will be forced to change my browser to one that actually protects my machine after I use their system tell it to do so! Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks so much - appreciate any help on this!
