I have checked the box to block pop-ups but it isn't working anymore. I think I just got a firefox update. Anyone else having lots of pop-ups suddenly?

You may have ad / mal-ware. Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

I don't know how to do this. And I don't want to pay for anything.

There is no cost. The scanners are free to use. Just install them, and let them work.
