Hi guys. I dont mean to post too much in the forum, but ive got another issue.

This started three or four days ago. So i go into FireFox, and i go to a site, and a new site opens up in a nw tab thats random. This happens a couple times. Next day, it happens a couple times, not often enough to post. But today, its happening not with specific sites anymore, but with any. For example, i just loaded up a Youtube video, and it happened. I load up bleepingcomputer.com to read some threads, which i like to do, it happens. I go to a couple article sites, and it happenes again. And my pop-up blocker is on, but one started to show but then closed. Its just annoying. Its happened like 5 times in a half hour or so this morning. So annoying. Please help!
