Is there anyway to stop popups from web pages when I type the name of a service company ? The popups are like, "need a roofer"

Is this happening randomly on multiple sites Jim, or on a specific site or sites only? Can you please provide a link to an example site.

What browser are you using?

Hi Jim, this occurs on random sites when looking for a service company.
The most recent was I typed in DWF roofing and when I clicked on any of the items listed I got a popup. And if I returned to web page and clicked on another listed item, the popup showed again. It said, "looking for a roofer" with a spot to reply.

I really feel, stupid! Now I can not reproduce the popup. Next time I will take a screen shot and attach.

Are you using any blocking software, as Firefox allows users to block almost every annoying aspect while surfing, Mindblower!

No problem Jim. Get back to us with a screenshot if the issue reappears.
