I now have really annoying green underlined text with pop ups all over the place, did you guys put this into the browser? i didn't want such a stupid annoying thing. how is this supposed to enhance firefox?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Nope, Mozilla didn't add that to Firefox.
See this "opt-out" page for that service - http://www.textsrv.com/optout.php
You can look at Adblock Plus.
You need to subscribe to a Filter list (e.g. the EasyList).
Ask advice at the Adblock Plus forum if it doesn't help:
thanks for the replies, i have seen all the stuff about add block and various other ways to get rid of it, but i am still wondering how the hell it got there in the first place?? the only thing i have updated recently is firefox, it doesn't display this kind of nonsense on any other browser... i just downloaded a couple others and checked these pages side by side so im assuming it must be a firefox thing and am moving on.

I appreciate the time to make a response.
how about this for an option, how about im given the choice to want this with a stupid captcha and having to repeat this if i clear my cookies?
So question still remains... how did this get on my computer if not through firefox?
Such links are usually added by a script that runs on that web page and that activates a pop-up on hover.
You can probably hide them as well with code in userContent.css if the same ID or class name is used for each pop-up (won't work if it is Flash content).
Can you post a link?
You can also do a malware check with some malware scanning programs.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.
