Help Please! An Adware Tab Keeps Popping Up Randomly On Firefox, And I Can't Stop It!

Hello, I am new here. I have been using Firefox on my Windows laptop for a while now, but now, I have an adware tab that keeps popping up randomly! This is the tab that keeps popping up: cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php I've tried everything, from refreshing Firefox, installing add-ons to block pop-ups, blocking the site with BlockSite (add-on to block websites), and still it is popping up! By default, whenever the rather assertive tab opens itself, I get a message saying that Firefox prevented the page from redirecting. When I allowed it to show, it would show me some obviously malicious ad, saying something like "Windows Media Player is out of date! Click to update now!" (it was different ads each time, but all of them wanted me to download a program). Now whenever I allow it to show, I get redirected to http://www.adtrackone.eu/go.php?a_aid=55415c29d7266 and Firefox gives me a message that says that the website is a reported attack site, and advises me not to continue. When I do proceed to the site, I don't even get an advertisement anymore; a pop-up from Firefox appears, asking if I'd like to save "Setup__11652_il641438.exe" Of course, I have not saved the executable, as it is obviously malware, and I've gotten some pretty bad viruses on my laptop before (Security.Hijack was one of them. What a nasty thing that was! There was also Storm Watch, Desktop Temperature Monitor, et cetera, I'm getting off topic.) And even when my computer is off, this bugger still finds a way to open itself! I usually find about 5 or 6 of these tabs open every morning, each one with the message "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." It used to just keep opening itself one at a time, but now it's opening itself in pairs. For example, it's already happened three times while I've been typing this; I'll be typing, then the tab will pop up twice in a row! I'm sorry that this message is so long, but I really need help! This is actually the first time I've made a forum post for help...I searched for cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php online, and the only result I could find was a page in Polish where someone had it set as their home page and couldn't get rid of it. Unfortunately, there were no solutions to that problem. Again, I'm sorry for the dreadfully long message but I REALLY need help! Refreshing Firefox, uninstalling my add-ons and themes, deleting suspicious-looking files in my Firefox data folder, scanning my computer for viruses with MalwareBytes - all of these have done NOTHING to help the issue! Here are some screenshots, if they'll help. Please, ANY help at all will be appreciated! If you need any more information, ask! Screenshots (had to use an image hoster because it wasn't working when I tried to add them for some reason): http://s28.postimg.org/5kv62lwvh/Screenshot_1482.png http://s28.postimg.org/hlgm3c4a5/Screenshot_1483.png http://s28.postimg.org/6pp87zjcd/Screenshot_1484.png http://s28.postimg.org/u2n9qhzfx/Screenshot_1485.png

I have a redirect problem with Firefox but not Safari: Norton antivirus finds no viruses on computer so maybe it's on the modem router: what can I do?

I'm using a Mac running OS X Yosemite, 10.10.5. When I use Firefox (but not when I use Safari) to go to any website that doesn't have a little green locked padlock icon next to its URL, the browser tries to redirect me to an adware site within a few seconds. I have now clicked the button telling Firefox to notify me when this happens, so I no longer actually get the adware site -- just a notification from Firefox that it's been told to go there and a blank screen.

Norton antivirus has done a complete system scan and finds nothing. Maybe the problem is on my ADSL router, or maybe it's some legitimate-looking add-on. I have contacted the router company and they sort-of helped, perhaps by sending a firmware upgrade to the router but I don't know. Soon after I contacted them the problem went away, but only briefly. Now it's back

I really want to get rid of this thing, as I greatly prefer Firefox to Safari. What should I do?

I downloaded the Ad-Aware Security toolbar about a year ago. Firefox accepted it. It showed. And it functioned, correctly. Then, suddenly, it disappeared. It did not show on my homepage or any page. It disappeared also from the list of extensions.

I uninstalled it and re-loaded it. Firefox accepted it. But again it did not show, though Firefox said it showed. I repeated the process twice more. Still the same problem recurred.

Then I uninstalled Ad-Aware itself and the Ad-Aware toolbar and reloaded a newer version and also loaded the Ad-Aware toolbar again. And again Firefox accepted the toolbar and said it was active, but the toolbar did not show. Where I say Firefox said the toolbar was active or that Firefox said it showed, I mean this: When I right-click on the toolbar area at the top of my home page or any page, I see Ad-Aware toolbar checked, just as I see checked my AVG safe search toolbar. The AVG toolbars actually shows as a working toolbar. The Ad-Aware does not show.

This is the second time I have reported this problem. Firefox did not respond the first time.

Hi, This little popup comes up all the time quite annoyingly when I place the cursor over words. At times it covers up words that I cannot read. I was wondering if I could eliminate it somehow. The little pop up has a question mark, a camera, and a magnifier that opens up to a little lock open and closed with the words regular and incognito. I don't know what is for by the way, nor what is called. I tried to upload a screenshot of the thing but it seems I am not allowed to do it.

I think over a year ago I may have accidentally downloaded it, but haven't since and have ran all kinds of anti-virus and malware removal programs. I suspect this is the result of malware because Microsoft Security Essentials automatically pops up and says I was protected from something.

Anyone else have this problem? I've ran Microsofct Security Essentials, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, AdwCleaner, and Stinger. They don't seem to find anything.

Ive gone through all of your solutions, there is nothing in my extensions or add-ons that shouldnt be there. So why does this continue to happen? I need to get rid of yahoo now. I even ran yahoo through the finder and there is nothing on my laptop for yahoo. Isnt there a script I can look for in firefox that can be deleted or something??

None............and I do mean NONE of the posted solutions posted permanently resolve the problem. They will temporarily, but inevitably Yahoo rears it's ugly head again. Comically Mozilla has admitted awareness of the problem stating "it was a glitch in version 35, but it has been corrected and updating to version 36 will take care of it". So what are we on now..............version 42 and it's still ongoing. The I.T. department at the corporation I work for finally got so fed up with calls about this that we are no longer permitted to use the Firefox browser on corporate owned PC's. Unless Yahoo has a malicious hacker in their ranks or there is a "cyber browser conspiracy" between Yahoo and Mozilla I find it incredibly difficult to believe they can't resolve this!?!?!?

Every now an then, since about a year ago, when I try to open a link from Google search results in FF, a web-page appears instead in the form of a virus (but it's not) with a popup window saying "Dear Firefox user, You are our lucky visitor ..." After that, I have to restart FF, otherwise this "thing" goes on. This last time I copied the URL (unfortunately, I didn't take a screenshot!), which was http://vacationdestination.org/maintenance/-/price/-/Deal848. However, it seems it's a fake one, since I could not open it again. (not even just 'http://vacationdestination.org'). I have done a virus check and nothing was detected. Also, opening FF in safe mode doesn't help, since as I said this "thing" is quite occasional and *not repeatable*. I would like please to know if someone has had *the same exact problem* and has solved it. Please don't reply by giving general suggestions like "open in safe mode", "do a virus scan" etc.

When using Firefox, Yahoo often cuts in, usually with a DNS complaint, and won't let me connect. I don't use Yahoo. I continually strip it from the list of possible browser search choices, but it keeps coming back to the list, and makes itself my browser of choice. I keep correcting this, and it keeps coming back. It is causing me to have to use another browser most of the time, though I would prefer not to. Please tell me what I can do to prevent Yahoo from trying to control my computer!!!

My Firefox is 39.0, and my Mac 10.7.5. I believe Flash Player may be involved (maybe not) and that is version 18.0 r0, which is not allowed to act unless I tell it to.
