Re: pop-up windows all the time in Firefox, Stretch

Back up your ~/.mozilla folder, delete it and reopen Firefox. This will create a fresh Firefox profile. Make sure that Firefox's built in pop up blocker is enabled. Then navigate to websites that are generating pop-ups that normally don't.
If the pop-ups persist, then either your computer has been hijacked (wiping your HD and re-installing the OS might fix) , your modem/router has been hijacked (check your modem/router for firmware updates), or shenanigans are occuring through your ISP (which you probably can't do anything about).
You are top-posting, which you will have to learn to respect the choice not to,
and you are responding to me personally as I am having the problem. I don't
even use Mozilla anymore.
Any reference on hijacking trojans on Debian would be most interesting.
