I get an annoying ad at the bottom of my screen. When I hit "disable", it shows up as a sidebar. How do I get rid of these annoying ads?
I have looked and haven't found anything on this subject. I'm using Firefox 16.0.2. on a Windows 7 system. I get these ads in a banner covering the bottom of my screen. If I click the "X" button, it will disappear for a little bit and reappear. If I click the "disable" button, it'll appear as a side bar and it doesn't have a "disable" button on it, just an "about this ad" button.
If I click it's "X" button, it reappears as a banner at the bottom of the screen. While the ad is in the side bar position, I get this annoying banner at the bottom saying "related: ".
How do I disable this? It's annoying and I get enough ads on the websites I search.
The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

I found an add-on called "Yontoo" on my Firefox. I have removed it ans it seems to have corrected my problem. However, just to be sure I'm continuing to scan for malware which will, if there, need to be removed.
