Pop-up ads all over EF (even when logged in!)

Anyone else getting tons of pop-up ads and new windows? FWIW, I am logged in. All the ads have this in the lower corner:

ADS BY Light Cinema 1.2beta

Re: Pop-up ads all over EF (even when logged in!)

Further information: seems not to be a problem in Internet Explorer, but is a huge problem in Firefox. Was not having a problem before this evening, so I suspect something's changed on the EF site.

Whoops, a quick web search shows that this is a client-side issue -- looks like something's infected Firefox.

Clear your cookies. Use CCleaner & Malwarebytes then install Ad Block.

Yep, Ad Block Plus from Firefox add ons (tools drop down menu).
The one with the red octagonal stop sign with 'ABP' in the middle - works wonders.

You might also need to uninstall manually some unwanted adware that ties up to your Programs after running upgrades on e.g. Windows 8. Had a fight with these last week. Plus one for Adblock plus.

I must agree with others, run CC and your antivirus. Check your firewall settings too. Maybe un- and reinstalling some programs could be helpful too?
