lately ive noticed that i have been getting more popups than before. its not to the point that it is annoying but ive started noticing it.

is it possible that it has become so popular that soon we might see the same problems with firefox we see it IE?

Count on it. It will be interesting to see how they react to the vulnerabilities and exploits that will be found and if they can be corrected. It was only a matter of time until malware writers targeted the browser alternatives to IE. As IE matures it becomes more difficult to find holes, but the others have yet to recieve the full attention of the malware community.
