The other day i started getting this online protection tool pop up saying its "microsoft" etc etc.. i've never clicked ok usually i just close it out and then it goes away.. but usually at least once per opening of firefox it will get redirected to some other site and then i have to close out and reopen it again.. this is the most problems its causing currently and its more of an annoyance.. i've ran malwarebytes and some other programs and it still hasn't helped.. anything you all can do to help is greatly appreciated

thanks in advance
