How do I stop the Browser settings change window from appearing in bottom right corner of my screen

The following details appear in a small window of the bottom left of my screen which cannot be closed:

Browser settings change

! an unknown change was detected on your browser's search settings:

     * Keep my current settings.
     * I am aware of this change and approve it


                                                                                  Yes

when I click on Yes or on red X nothing happens and small window is still visible.

hello, this is usually caused by adware on your pc.

please run a scan of your system with adwcleaner & also manually check that you don't have any suspicious entries like 3rd-party-toolbars presently installed under firefox > addons > extensions (adware like babylon also might install some unwanted stuff that comes under the names "Browser Manager", "Browser Protector", "Bprotector", "Object Installer", etc.) or in the windows control panel > programs section.

afterwards install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customziations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page
