How do I get rid of Firefox Ads that are constantly popping up whenever I click to another website or in the same website?

The moment I open Firefox, a "Firefox" AD pops up. Anytime I navigate Facebook or it's apps a "Firefox" AD pops up! Anytime I go to any website, a "Firefox" AD pops up! They are genuine "Firefox" ADS, I've checked in your Troubleshoot guide! I can't do anything without these ads interrupting, slowing and stopping up my activity! I've also gone to the "Pop-Ups" page and made sure Firefox is not an "exception" to pop-ups!

Please remove them, it is harassment! I don't want anyone's ADS!

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

I really don't have any idea what you mean.

I've never seen any ads from Firefox when opening a link.

If you would like help in removing these ads, we can help you, but you need to work with us (give screenshots, try the steps we give you, etc.). Firefox has never had ads (at least like you are describing) so you much be seeing something else.

It will not "screen shot"....the ads are Mozilla ads...I went to your website and the Mozilla logo and print are in the top left corner...I determined it by YOUR instructions on the troubleshoot page.

Please create a screenshot of the problem you're seeing by following the guide mentioned at How do I create a screenshot of my problem?.

Once you've done this, attach the saved screenshot file to your forum post by clicking the Browse... button below the Post your reply box. This will help us to visualize the problem.

So, you can't open Firefox, press the Print Screen button on your keyboard, then open paint, paste, then save as a .png?

If all you are wanting to do is be argumentative and belligerent there isn't any use continuing here when there are people who really do want help and want to work with us in a polite way. I'm locking this thread, you can PM me if you want to calm down and work together to get this sorted out (If you had just told me what was failing I could have helped)
