This just started occurring on my PC when I use Firefox: why is the background of the address bar orange/yellow with diagonal stripes and there is a robot at the start of the web address? I'm concerned it may be a virus or the web browser is being remotely monitored.

Please refer to the attached image. Thank you,

The robot icon and colored address bar should be gone.

I did all of the above and still have the orange stripes and robot icon. I'd like them both gone.
