Windows 7: Firefox double-lined and linked words.

Firefox double-lined and linked words.

I don't know if this is the right location to put this, so could someone please move it is it isn't in the right place.

I have been having a problem with Firefox recently, each page I go on to has some words linked to other websites. It has been going on for about a month now and I don't know what is going on with it.

The screenshot shows what has been happening, if you want me to take a better screenshot just ask.

Could be ads, could be a weird add on. Have you tried clicking firefox-help-restart with addons disabled?

Yes I have and it has done the same thing, and I don't think it is a weird add on because the only add on that I have enabled right now is add blocker.

Okay, I just found out what the links lead to. It appears to be some weird form of add that links to other websites. Here is a picture of what one of the links from my 7F CP leads to.

I don't think you should be getting those if you are logged in here, z3r010 could help with that.

That is adware according to my Google searches.

You should also run a threat scan with MBAM: https://www.malwarebytes.org/getmbam
You should run a full scan too if you have the time. It will search deeper in areas that malware usually does not infect, but sometimes they do infect the least obvious spaces. Please show us a screenshot of the results so we can make sure you are not removing false positives. You mat even find other viruses you have never known was on your system.
