I usually use DuckDuckGo for searches. Since the last Firefox update, I get a popup ad for a "DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials" add-on every time I (a) re-open Firefox and (b) search with DuckDuckGo. How can I stop this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Seems like it's coming from DuckDuckGo not from FireFox and could be result of the site your going to that is displaying that as well. You should check DuckDuckGo support about this.
