Windows 7: How to remove ADChoice from Firefox/Win7

How to remove ADChoice from Firefox/Win7

Recently I noticed that AdChoice popup windows are appearing on all my web pages when browsing. I noticed that it usually is an ad for something I may have browsed a few days earlier, but not always. It's annoying and also I don't feel secure with this thing popping up. How can I remove it permanently? And how did I even get it in the first place, so I will know how to avoid it in the future?
