so im perusing my favorite motorcycle site with my yahoo mail opened in a separate tab. im running the latest and the 'greatest' version of Firefox. 3.6 or something i think...

all of a sudden i hear a commercial where some guy is asking a girl if she tweeted about being all out of wheat thins! i quick scan all my tabs and theres no rogue browser window open, i open the yahoo tab thinking maybe there was an ad that got clicked and then i minimize the browser and the ad disappears...

WTH? have i got some kind of malware that needs to be addressed? has anyone else had this happen? everyone and a while too, i get this random 'mouse/button click' sound as if im clicking something with the the touch pad. it seems to be related (as in it just started around the time i started getting the random advertisements)...

does anyone know of a bug that came with the latest firefox?
