Mn thread keeps trying to redirect me?

Could you take a look at this HQ/tech please.

In firefiox, hit f5 to refresh and keep getting a msg bar at the top that is telling me that it is trying to redirect me. I am not entirely certain WHY it is trying to redirect me from the thread I am refreshing nor where it is trying to redirect me to (and I am not willing to find out tbh having just had to spent the last 3 days locked out of mn due to a bug that needed clearing from the computer system).

Is it supposed to be redirecting me? Is it safe to allow? Or have you got a problem?

Screen grab below:

Ooer - is anyone else having this problem?

Still doing this HQ. Is this an issue I need to sort out with my computer? or something you are looking into.

Hi Bitchy

To be honest, if it's only you having the problem it's more likely to be a problem with you than with us - have you run a virus check?

If anyone else is experiencing this do let us know!

Have run a virus check, and reinstalled the browser also. Could it have something to do with the ads?

Ok, weirdly when I allowed it to redirect when I refreshed this page it took me to this Page. So i think it must me something to do with an ad redirect thing and because I never look at them don't notice it. Because it does not do this when I am on another site. Weird. Must have set an option or something I didn't know about when I was sorting through an clearing out post virus.
