I've had two instances within the past couple weeks where my browser would automatically open a new page alerting me of a Firefox update whilst browsing this forum followed by receiving a notification of malware being detected in the system. I suspect this is being caused by one of the advertisements being used here as this has not been happening for me on any other website I frequent.
I would like to know if anyone else here has been encountering any similar problems. The browser I have been using is Firefox if that makes a difference but the update notifications I receive here are not real. I'm going to have to keep my Ad Blocker on here for the time being even though that doesn't support the site until I know this issue has been resolved.
I've gotten that (the false notification of a Firefox update) a couple times recently, but not via this forum. I don't remember where I was the first time that happened, but the second time (this afternoon) I was at a DeviantArt page. Anyway, my security (GData) seems to detect it right away.
