Want to delete adverts that came with updated Firefox

more options

When I go onto Jacquie Lawson web page adeverts appear at the top of the page and it has happed on another site too. How can I stop this happening as they are a distraction. If the mouse hovers near the advert it then fills the page.

Many thanks Janet Johnston

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.
