    I keep getting "consumernewsonline.org on my screen. I can't delete it.
    I have to shut down.
    Is there a way to prevent this from happening?:mad:

    I just Quit Firefox...and it took care of the problem.
    It probably won't prevent it from happening again but at least it won't stop me from working on the Mac.

    Clear your cache and cookies. Also, check into ad-blockers, if you don't already have some.

    The thread title seems redundant to me.

    OP, are there any ads you actually DO want? :confused:
