Spybot

Adaware

Nothing unusuallly in startup, checked autoruns over and over again. Google does not bring up much but there are a handful of threads around that have seen simular ads.

Most of vube.com's advertising is via popup ads.  Sounds like your pop-up blocking settings are probably different with firefox and the other browsers you have tried.  Or perhaps the ad network's popups are out-smarting firefox.  As a developer at vube, I can assure you that vube.com is malware-free - so no need to worry if you've been infected.
