Mozilla Firefox
Popup Ad Windows

For about 3 or 4 weeks I have been experiencing random new windows opening in Mozilla Firefox, featuring totally unwanted spam advertisements for things like on-line gambling, and on-line fantasy adventure gaming (the two I most remember).

There does not seem to be any discernible pattern as to when these unwelcome windows present themselves, except that it does seem to happen most when I am opening a new tab in an existing window.

There has not been anything too objectionable about the content of these ads so far (no pornography, etc. yet), but the frequency is either increasing or my tolerance to them is decreasing - I can't tell which.

I have been a constant proponent of Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird for ages and ages, converting I don't know how many people to your ranks. But I have to admit I am on the verge of switching back to Explorer or possibly Chrome, as I cannot stand these nuisance windows, and nothing I have used to try and get rid of them has worked so far (I have run Spybot Search & Destroy, AVG anti-virus, Glary Utilities and Ad-Aware - all without success).
