I am having trouble with Firefox and it's a problem that started this morning after my mother turned on the computer and opened the program. Whenever Firefox is open, I get pop-ups that I never used to get. They aren't pop-ups that appear when I click on a link. They are pop-ups that appear out of nowhere.
In addition, I'm getting a strange thing happening when I perform a Google search and get my search results. When I click on a link I am immediately taken to a new search engine (whose name I won't mention here for obvious reasons). I am able to get to my desired page by clicking the back button and then clicking on the link a second time.
Needless to say, this is annoying. I'm running my antiviral and spyware programs as I type this and if anything is found, I'll update this post. Until then: DAMN YOU, POP-UP -BLOCKER GETTING-AROUNDER CODE WRITER!
