Starting today, Yahoo mail on Firefox suddenlty going to a porn site

Twice now, my browser's just been sitting on Yahoo, I glance up and it's suddenly on a porn site. This is brand new. I've started a Norton full scan. Any other suggestions to find out what has corrupted FF or the system, and how to stop it?

Oh, and I should have saved the url, but it had porn and the fake warning to click to clear; so I quickly killed it.

Hello ithinktfiam

You can try a full scan with the FREE version of Malwarebytes and do not load up the free trial of the Premium version. Please remember to update the program before starting the scan..

The use of an Ad-Blocker for your browser will help also.

Thanks.

You do realize that "our product stinks so try Malwarebytes" isn't the best pitch for customer loyalty, right? In addition, I've used it for years and will run a scan after Norton finishes.

I already use an ad blocker too, and that's not the problem. The entire page's url switches to the site, as if something corrupt has gotten into either Firefox's or Yahoo's code, or somehow is otherwise interfering with their actions.

Also, I was busy then, I went back to my history and found a whole bunch of: 

Before that, there are, in order, of oldest to newest, single occurrences of:

Hopefully that will help track down the confusion.

It is not that Norton 'stinks', but it concentrates on malware that can damage your system. MBAM concentrates more on these PUPs.

It looks like you have picked up a PUP, a Possibly Unwanted Program. While they are annoying, they do not cause damage to your system. Some people actually want the 'Features' offered by these programs. They are usually downloaded alongside a legitimate download when you do not uncheck the option for the additional download.

Norton products concentrate on malware that can damage your system, that is why some PUPs are not detected.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
