hi,
I have recently noticed a new tab open, it is always called 'preview' and usually has ads for green cards, casinos etc. I have noticed it especially when viewing digital scrapbooking blogs and sites.
Any advice how to stop it?
thanks

That sounds like a Firefox add-on, such as https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2207/.

It does sound similar but I don't have that add on. I do have stumble upon which I don't really like, so I have got rid of it, maybe that will help. thanks
