These seem to appear randomly on any web page, and when you hover the mouse over the blue underlined the text it brings up a box advertising "Do you live alone", "Watches from bid.Com", "UFX Markets" just to mention a few examples. Seems Firefox has been hijacked by something.
Sometimes they appear in F1 posts as well.
Anyone else found these? or know about them?

Have a look at this site on how to deal with this problem.

There is a thread somewhere on PressF1 about this, but I can't find it now.

Thanks Terry.
Seems to have stopped it. Can't see any at present so will just have wait and see.
Would still like to know where from and how.
