Default Mysterious Ad??

I am getting a strange ad pop-up that just started today. It took me a couple tries to get a screen capture of it but I finally got it.

This is what keeps popping up, but only for a few seconds and if you happen to click on it, it goes to an advertised site. I am even using firefox and it still comes up. It was annoying because when i was about to submit a post this ad box appeared right over the submit button just before i clicked and so it took me to the ad site...



It's that black box, that is all it seems to show and it goes to a different site every time i click it.

Default Re: Mysterious Ad??

Well, it comes up when it finds words relevant that it can advertise with..

For example, 'communcation software' and 'communication' comes up with an ad on the main page when I navigate my cursor over there, and the ads I'd imagine are relevant to 'communication ...'.

And when making a post, as I just did.. 'message' in Post Icons box makes one occur as well.

Its indexing the words into its service and then broadcasting ads relevant..

It comes up with posts as well:

Scroll your cursor over 'message', 'communication' and 'service' in this post alone.
