I have found that when I go to one particular website, which is for Channel 5 in Nashville TN, that it won't go to newschannel5, but to a bunch of ad sites. I run mal-warebytes, etc., and it's not being detected at all. This is annoying as can be. I don't know what to do to get rid of this problem.

I just went to http://www.newschannel5.com/ and it shows up just fine

 

Since you said you go to one particular website, I imagine you do not have issues with any other website

Just that one. That's why I think something in Firefox has attached itself to the url for that page on my laptop. It's weird.

It sounds like your laptop computer could use some maintenance

--- Somewhere along the way, it appears one of the ads popped up and the rest is history

--- I've had a few times that I have clicked on something for my newspaper but within a split second an ad popped up

--- I should have waited for the website to fully load before clicking on an article I wanted to read

I don't use Firefox so I'm not familiar with proper maintenance procedures for them 

However, clear out your internet cache, delete cookies, run disk cleanup and whatever else you do

Also run AdwClwaner from BC's Downloads list: It's an excellent adware cleaner upper
