Default ad problem on forum

For the last week whenever I click on a thread on the forum I almost immediately get a pop up ad covering the text. Can't figure our if it is the forum, Firefox or another issue. Anybody else having this problem??

I have not had any problems. I suspect your computer. I would scan your computer for adware and other malicious files. I, too, use Firefox and run Adblocker Plus. This helps tremendously and speed up the page loading.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Thanks for the input. I just ran Norton and Norton Power Eraser and found no issues. Changed to Chrome and the problem cleared up so I may have a glitch in my last Firefox update. I'll reload it and see what happens. Just trying the easy route before adventuring out into the "dark places" in my laptop. Didn't want to go out into the weeds unless I had to.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox 41.0.1 and have no issues.
I also use the free version of Malwarebytes (have been using this for a long time) and find it's one of the better programs.

It includes Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit

I've been told by Admin that guests get ads Gary but once you join and login with your username they are supposed to stop.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
