I got a weird warning while playing a FB game tonight. It opened a new tab in Firefox & started playing an audio message telling me to call this number.  One message states:  WARNING:  Customer - Your browser and computer may be compromised by security threats.  Call 1-877-679-2144 now for IMMEDIATE assistance.  There's a web page behind that pop up message.  it's (malware alert dot org slash warning dot html).   How do we get this to stop?  Is it a virus?  I scanned with AVG & it didn't pick anything up.

Sounds like there is something fishy going on in your system. Try checking your FireFox Add-Ons and Extensions and remove anything. You might also want to have a quick look at your Programs and Features to see if there is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) installed on your computer.
