Basically, I was playing full screen Starcraft whilst Firefox was running with multiple tabs open in the background. I alt-tabbed from the game to Firefox, and right clicked my taskbar and closed the game. As soon as I did this, a tab opened to Adtechus. (A legitimate AD company from what I can tell). I had a look on the website that was open when I alt tabbed before the new tab to Adtech opened and one of the ads on it had an Adtechus URL. The thing that perplexes me is that, my mouse didn't go near it, and so I couldnt have clicked it.
After this, a short while later, I re-opened the game, alt tabbed and before I could close it, another tab opened automatically from a site I was on before with a Facebook box implemented into it, and for some reason the new tab contained the Facebook "like" box seperate from everything else.

Full website with the box to the left, here: http://www.gonintendo.com/
I can recreate this by right clicking the Facebook box on this specific website and choosing "This Frame > Open Frame in New Tab". But the thing is, I never did this in the first place! Plus, the website was already closed 20 seconds previously before this new tab popped up.
Then, automatically, another Adtechus tab popped up shortly after!
I am quite sure I have not got any viruses as I have a multi layered protection implemented on my computer and am concious of what I download/what websites I visit. This is not a regular occurance and has only happened today. Besides, these tabs opened from elements that were already on websites I had open, (ads, facebook "like" boxes) so it leads me to believe its something more cryptic?
I am also running noscript.
Thanks for your help. I would appreciate any and all replies.
