how do I stop Firefox from opening new windows from from servads.com each time I access a new tab? I've tried every suggestion on the web.

each tab I access in Firefox produces another firefox browser to open with a window that has a url www.servads.com as well as opening the selected tab. All the things I've tried to rid them are listed below in Troubleshooting Information. Please help

Hi,

Please try the Reset Firefox feature via Help (Alt + H) > Troubleshooting Information.

(To revert to the previous profile you were using, close the new profile (i.e. exit Firefox), start Firefox and choose the Default User profile. While the Profile Manager is open, you can also delete the newly reset profile (the one containing random numbers), or the former profile, as the case may be). If the reset is okay, it would be a good idea to delete the old profile as otherwise it would be left intact with the previous data/cache until deleted.
