The App Store opens spontaneously and it takes me to candy crush download page while browsing websites.

That happens because the site you're on has a popup ad that redirects you to the App Store. I see it most often with Candy Crush, but have seen it with other silly little games as well.

I will never play Candy Crush because of this, and any other app that uses these redirect ads goes on my blacklist as well.
Register on MacRumors! This sidebar will go away, and you'll see fewer ads.
