Recently I have been getting a Host78.com ad whenever I click on the google link in my Firefox bookmarks. It appears I can make it go away by deleting my history/cookies, but it comes back after I use google a couple times afterwards. I don’t want to clear my temporary cache every single time I want or need to use google.
My question is: is there any way to stop this? Its annoying. When you attempt to navigate away, it gives you one of those “Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page” windows. I think there’s a way to block certain “hosts” but from what I have read, doing so can really slow down your internet browsing.
Is there a simple way to make this stop? Alas, searching google yields very little, unsurprisingly.
Edit: its not malware. The first couple times I saw this I thought maybe my browser had been hijacked. It hasn’t. Avast and Malware bytes reveal nothing.
