    There is all of the sudden an Ad for the English Language Institute (no clue, I assure you!) on the download log window.

    I'll show you all a pic.
    Let me know what I can do about this and what you might think it is?

    Its my understanding that Macs cant get adware, is that correct? From reading around.
    I claim to be no mac genius, i just know that they're significantly less problem prone than PCs and i like the OS better!
    So, I'm not too knowledgable about any of this.

    It doesn't seem like a Mac problem, but a FireFox one. Make sure you trust all the extensions you installed on FireFox. Also try surfing with the default theme. Maybe it's how the third-party theme styled the download box.
