There is a great free addon for Firefox called NOSCRIPT

It stops clickjacking etc., even stops many adverts on trustworthy websites.
When you install it, every time you visit a website for the first time, you have to allow it.

It won't fix your present problem but will help avoid problems in the future.

If you want to keep the toolbar or whatever it is you have installed on your browser, AdBlock is the best option out there. But seriously, run some anti-malware software.

This is interesting. We recently downloaded the latest version of Firefox and Google Chrome.
We just went to Google the search engine with our Firefox browser.
We entered the search term you see in the image.
No ads.  
Why?

And we did not change any settings within Firefox or Google search.
Maybe you un-install and re-install (?)
