    Looks like I may have accidentally downloaded something I shouldn't have on my Macbook. When running Firefox I get annoying banners that pop-up on pages that shouldn't have ads (image links included). The ads are always promoting something different, but below the banners there is text that reads, "Ads not by this site." Anyone know what the problem might be and how I can fix it?

    So far, I'm only having the issue when using Firefox.

    I'm running OS X 10.6.8 and using Firefox 18.0.1.
