Download prompts on loading EF homepage

I am using Firefox 16.0.1 on Windows XP SP3, and since today morning, whenever I refresh the EF homepage, or click on the Home button or the EF logo, I am prompted with 2 downloads

Re: Download prompts on loading EF homepage

It looks like this is coming from one of the ad servers. I got it once but was unable to repeat it.

Needless to say should anybody get this then CLICK ON CANCEL.

Also it might be worthwhile to install an adblocker for the time being until we can get to the bottom of it.

Re: Download prompts on loading EF homepage

OK. It was an error on the home.ch domain. Nothing malicious, just that the site had thrown a wobbler. The domain has now been deactivated from the ads until they get their act together and fix it.

Panic over
