This appears to be what Malwarebytes is blocking :
So Firefox is tied into Amazon?
Firefox has nothing to do with Amazon. Your browser is most likely now infected and requires a computer shop to remove and restore the function. Otherwise you will have to go online with a different computer or browser and search for how to remove the infection. Those are your choices here.
The Amazon AWS servers and Cloudfront servers are used to store data that isn't included in Firefox because they are large or change content regularly. This is similar to CDN servers and allows to make updated data available to all supported Firefox versions. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

The Firefox web browser does not do popup ads.
