Open Firefox is ok but as soon as I click anywhere on that browser this pops up as a new tab. (Screen shot attached). Cleared cookies. Ran Malwarebytes and Avast scans, zero issues.

Run the Farbar program as suggested.

This issue was only in Firefox. Internet Explorer did not have any problems. Leads me to believe that the problem was embedded in Firefox.

I decided to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. That appears to have taken care of the issue (so far so good).

If it comes back I'll try the Farbar program.

Thank you.
