New tabs for http://www.thankyourewardz.com/ keep popping up, how to stop it ?

New tabs for http://www.thankyourewardz.com/ keeps opening uncontrollabli and eveytime I close one, 2 new pops back up.

I've searched online but find little help. One forume has people running every anti-virus amd spyware remover without finding anything, only thing they have found for sure is that this problem is ONLY in Firefox.

hello kimahri1980, run a full scan of your system with the security software already in place and different tools like the free version of malwarebytes, microsoft safety scanner or kaspersky security scan since popups are usually a sign of malware active on the pc.

afterwards reset firefox as described in this article.

Doesn't find anything, and it's not "Popups" as in new windows opening up, but new tabs.... Pops up no matter what I click on, try to "X" it, new tab opens, try to type something in to "Search", new tab opens, try to access Firefox Settings, new tab opens.....

Only thing that has helped some what is installing "BlockSite" addon.
