After a lot of reading on Mozilla's page for Firefox and how to solve a pop up ad campaign that blocks my attempts at reading Amazon and a few other shopping websites, I got angry enough to start my quest on how to remove this anoying bit of code. A few twists and turns have lead me here, to I hope will yeild a solution to my anoyance.

 

My name is Daniel and I am an English spaking person in a non English speaking (for the most part) country in eastern europ. I am hoping you can help me solve a few aggravations.

Thank's.

 

I have started the reading, and it looks like its going to be a lot. The hard part when you have to study to survive school and the computer you are using get's something you don't want. So as I can allocate time to this persuite, I will be back to figure out how to solve this annoyance. Back to the studdy programs for now though.

I understand.

You don't need to read all those topics right away but I would suggest starting a new topic in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum in order to clean and get your computer running properly again

Good luck.

Seeing you have an immediate problem.....Start a new topic HERE

 

Keep it simple....basically what you put in your opening post here will suffice...plus the OS you are using...windows 7 or 8 or whatever.....maybe the n ame on the popup...?

 

Then while you wait for a reply......go through the reading suggested by quietman7,.....it will save you some angst down the track and generally make your life simpler.

Hello guy's, I kept reading and sent an email to a buddy, the buddy told me about
one of the features I had forgoten about in Firefox, that is the Add-on's.  and he sent
me a link to a help page.
Remove Adware or pop-ups from Mozilla Firefox (Complete Guide)
hxxps://www.fixyourbrowser.com/how-to/remove-adware-pop-ups-mozilla-firefox-complete-guide/
 
It outlines that you can opt in or out of add-on's and I guess I opted in and forgot that I had.
The good new's is it was not a virus, and that by removing the add-on the pop up ad's that
were very annoying vanished when I took the plug in for Monarch Find out of Firefox.
 
I hope my frustrations and documenting them here will help someone else in the future.
Simple solution, if you can remember what you added, and how the program works.
 
Thank you for your support guys. Hope that everyone elses solution comes as easily.
And even though you never got the chance to solve this one, reading your posts
got me to thinking methodically again, which I guess you guy's inspired.
 
Daniel.
ps.  I guess I have to scream at myself for forgetting the set up
and not my paid subscription to Mcaffe. lol.
