Sites are opening on their own on Firefox - sites I don't want to waste my time on . . .
I recently joined some hideous dating sites and then decided very quickly they were not for me - I deleted my accounts - yet these hideous sites keep opening up tabs on my Firefox by themselves - advertising their sites. They just don't want to let you go after they get your information and are super aggressive about their lame products. I have emailed them - spoken to them on the phone - deleted them manually from my browser history - have listed them in the Firefox BLOCK section (Privacy and Security) - and yet these God damn sites keep opening. So I am assuming adware infection (although I have no idea?) I am not a computer wiz - I work on the computer and know my programs but do not know much about how the computer functions. Does anyone have an answer on how I can PERMANENTLY eliminate these horrible sites forever. I just want them gone - gone - gone - they are annoying and time consuming to keep deleting!!! I have used Firefox for a zillion years and have always liked it - but if I can't get rid of these insidious sites - I will be forced to change my browser to one that actually protects my machine after I use their system tell it to do so! Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks so much - appreciate any help on this!

Then you need to search online web how to remove such site notifications. If you did do the clear cache/history and they still popup then you got infections. And considering you have them your email and called them you placed yourself in their pocket and now they got your info literally. You need to clear cache/history and if that doesn't work then searching online how to remove that site notification from your computer otherwise. Then this requires a computer shop to look into and find and remove the problem.
