Hi, I've been having this problem for a couple days now. When I open Firefox, sometimes when I click anywhere on a page, a pop up will open. When I try to click on a link on the page, the pointer doesn't turn into a hand, it's just the normal mouse pointer and when I click the pop up opens. This doesn't happen all the time, but it does about 75% of the time I open a new page. I think I may have an unwanted extention or add on that's causing this, but when I look at my extensions and add-ons, I don't see any that look suspicious. I've tried various programs such as Junkware Removal Tool and AdwCleaner and I've run my anti-virus program and nothing seems to get rid of it. Can someone help me please, that would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
