Why am I getting all these pop up ads??

When viewing different posts, I will see certain words appear underlined and in blue and when you mouse over them, an ad will pop up. Also, I am getting other video ads popping up in the lower left corner of the screen. I ran malwarebytes and superantispyware but am still getting the ads. Any suggestions as to how to get rid of these?
Using firefox as a browser.

I'm a little too truthful, I guess.

This is something that just started happening. Also, not getting the ads when I use internet explorer.

I am not getting any ads, I am using Chrome. I would get some ads when I wasn't signed in to site.

FWIW...near the top of the FROG screen (just above the POST REPLY button) my screen show hyperlink buttons labeled "Adchoice" "RVs for Sale" "RV Camps" etc. This indicates ther's some commercial sponsorship to help defray the cost of maintaining the server and other expenses for this fine website.

However, there are no hyperlinks (highlighted buttons) within the post on my screen.

I also use Firefox V38.0.5 (click on Help and About Firefox to check your version...update to this latest as it seems quite stable.)

Crtl+shift+A will show you the add-ons on your copy of firefox.

If you don't currently have an Ad-blocker or tracker blocker, you can browse for one:

Use the search window to select a likely candidate.
Accept it and install it.
Restart Firefox
If annoying popups are gone, you're done.
Otherwise, uninstall first choice, pick another, install, restart, until you find one that works.

You might browse under most popular.....they got that ranking because they work

Good luck

I logged in and the ads stopped. You probably have to be logged in.

No Script

Another "friend" for you and Firefox is No Script.
Search for this add-on and install.
This will block malicious java scripts from running on your machine.
The only downside is every time you pull up a website that you have not visited before you have to "allow" it in the Options window. Also, if you allow the website and what you want is not visible click on the Options and see what scripts/web sites are blocked. Temporarily Allow the script/site until you see what you want/need to see. If that temporarily allowed site is not what you want, then Forbid it again and move on to the next.
Has saved our machines from nasties for several years.
C Cleaner (formerly Crap Cleaner until the PC Police got ahold of them) is one that has helped out as well. Cleans the "Crap" out of your machine like internet temporary files, bad cookies, etc. Google it.
Between No-Ad and No Script I see no ads on the screen unless I want to see them.

Hope this helps some.
