Pop-ups Firefox & Google Chrome

Hi Folks,
I seem to have picked up a bug and can"t get rid of it.
For no obvious reason I am now getting pop-ups when I open Firefox with Google.
I have checked that pop-ups are disabled in both option menus and have run both Avast and Malwarebytes - neither detecting anything.
I am now at the limit of my knowledge.
Anyone any ideas?
Thank you

Try roguekiller and adwcleaner. Good against adware

run both in safe mode and check your addons in both as well

Thank you. The adwcleaner worked fine - in fact it found tons of other add-ons as well!!
