I want to block a site that keeps coming up wanting to change my Java program from "Oracle" Java to something else. Is there a way to block specific sites in Firefox?

I am running Windows 8.1 on a Toshiba laptop and have Firefox 25.0.1  Mozilla 26-1.0

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Go to Mozilla Add-ons Web Page and look for a good pop-up blocker. Also look for a web site blocker.

hello Nglover1941, you have various adware addons present - maybe one of them is causing the issue. please try these steps:

  1. reset firefox (this wil keep your bookmarks and passwords)
  2. afterwards go to firefox > addons > extensions and in case there are still extensions listed there, disable them.
  3. finally run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner to make sure that adware isn't present in other places of your system as well.
