Windows 7: Small Re-Direct Box/Links appear in Firefox and won't let me logout

Small Re-Direct Box/Links appear in Firefox and won't let me logout

Good Day One And All,

I have had this incessant problem for some months now and it is not allowing me to loggout of my yahoo mail account...so I supose that is left open to hackers or something.

It works like this, I "hover" my cursor over the logout link , and a small box with a tiny globe in the center of it appears. When I "hover" over that little box I can see the path of the link. Sometimes it takes me to yahoo.com, other times on other pages to other places. I hate leaving my email program open like that, and only yesterday discovered that I could go into yahoo mail and the account page to then shut the door. There were over 20 incidents where the account was still left open, apparently. I am not really sure how this works, so pardon me for not even possessing the right nomenclature to describe the situation.

Any assist would be greatly appreciated!!

Many thanks in advance!!
