Looks like you may have a malicious extension or installed malware. See this thread on the AdBlock Plus forum:

.... which links here (please read through each of these pages!):

You should go through your Firefox -> Add-ons -> Extensions list and remove anything suspicious (see the above links) or else disable all extensions and see if the problem goes away. If it does, one of your extensions was causing it. This article will help with that: Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems.

If the problem persists, you should ask for help on a forum specializing in malware removal. See Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware for some recommendations.

I am using google chrome and have the same problem, this dam add on which I can't find or uninstall is driving me crazy. Does any one here have a link or know how to remove.

Who ever invented this needs to be shot. People don't want this problem. Please write back if you have a answer that might help

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.


Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Please try with Malwarebytes and TDSSKiller as well, they all scan for different things and remove different infections.

Try to ensure you scan with as many tools as possible, and that you use the very latest version of them. It is possible this is something new that some of them may not yet detect.
