Why am I getting all these pop up ads? I don't get nearly as many if I use Internet Explorer.

When i go to my homepage (Yahoo), these ads pop up and flash to get your attention. As many as three or four ads at a time. Do I have a malware problem or what?

hello, yes this looks quite like a problem with adware on your pc.

please reset firefox and also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and run a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and different other tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.
