Why am I still Getting Pop-up Ads!!!

I have the pop-up blocker turned on but I still keep getting pop-up ads on google, facebook, youtube, etc every time i click a link. I have always loved using firefox but unless this problem stops I'm gonna switch to safari or chrome. Please Help! Thanks

You shouldn't be getting pop-ups on Google, YouTube, or Facebook regardless of what browser you use. Your problem is probably being caused by a bit of adware on your computer or some other malicious application. Check your FireFox add-ons to see if there are any you don't recognize, or if you have any extra search bars like 'fast browser search' which are adware. If not, run a virus scan on your computer.

Aha you are a genius Papa Frita! I had some unknown add-ons. I erased them, and since then I haven't seen one pop-up! Thank you so much for making my life a little less stressful! I hope you have a great day!
