Fire fox current version very frustrating and allows losts of ads and popups. When ever I click on any link from a web page ( any web page) i get a pop ups from ads like jabong, etc. I use the url of the same web page in chrome or IE I do not get such popups. It also crashes often.

The only way to get rid of this is to get use to Chrome or some other browser.

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer. Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

I don't like installing add-ons as they greately increase the CPU use, but I have two that I consider essential and one of them is Addblock Edge 2.5.5 which is as effecient as all others and much lighter. It will take care of all pop-ups and adds.

If your problem is the pop-ups not the fasct that you see adds try the following options: Preferences - tabs: tick the following: open new windows in a new tab instead Preferences - content: tick the following: block pop-up windows

vksh89, What Extensions do you have installed as there are a few that can insert ad links on pages for example.

Also if Firefox is your default browser something on computer may be targeting it.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for a good ad blocker.
