    I have started to get a crapload of hot links stuck onto random text on web pages, what is this crap and how do I get rid of it? I have pop-ups blocked in my Firefox browser and I haven't changed any setting recently.

    Too many to list. See build page. Link in signature
    Switch to Mac and run safari. Never worry about viruses and malware again. Problem solved. :D

    Here is what we would do at work
    Check extentions/addons.
    Run virus scan for good measure.
    If still there, and teacher wants to keep Firefox, uninstall and reinstall.



    Macs get rootkits. rather take a virus over a rootkit anyday.

    Are you talking about where it blue underlines a good amount of words and gives you definitions of these words, or products related to them?

    You should run a antivirus scan (avg whole computer scan) and also download this if you don't have it. http://www.malwarebytes.org/ and do a scan of your computer using that.

    Make sure to clear cookies and registry . I didn't and my anti virus couldn't catch what was going in until I removed Firefox.

    Yeah I'll clear the reg and cookies too. We'll see, for the most part I haven't had issues with Firefox though, doesn't mean I'm not open to another brower
