How To Stop These Types of Pop-Ups?

I get two types of pop-ups I wish to get rid of:
1. The first is caused by Google Chrome. I get these square shaped pop ups at the lower right corner of my screen at least 3x bigger than the Outlook pop-up notifications of incoming emails (that also appear in the same corner of my screen). How do I stop the Chrome pop-ups?

2. The second type occurs in Chrome (and maybe Firefox?). Whenever I click on an active link, for example, the active link will open in a new tab along, PLUS another new tab will also open with something related, some annoying survey, or such. I'd really like to stop these superfluous tabs from opening.

If you can help me with #1 and/or #2 above, it would be greatly appreciated.
