How do I block ads and pop-ups?

Recently on every website I go to I get these weird ads on the webpage that didn't used to be there. Even on common websites like YouTube. I know they're not from the website cause they affect the web layout. Even at other time I get pop-ups from clicking nothing on the page or by remaining idle. I've already done spyware/malware scans but they always come out clean.

hello JC2013, if you notice signs of malware on your system please try these steps:

  1. reset firefox (this will keep your bookmarks and passwords)
  2. afterwards go to firefox > addons > extensions and in case there are still extensions listed there, disable them.
  3. finally run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner to make sure that adware isn't present in other places of your system as well.
