"Recommended for you" popup ads in the browser

Has anyone else seen this type of popup ads http://i.imgur.com/Nypkw.png ?
They are called "Recommended for you" and have started appearing in my browser (Firefox) in the last week or so. They are always related to what I'm reading, for example an article in the New Yorker about people not marrying, got me an ad about Singles. Going on the CNet website, got me Computer help ad. The strange thing is that the link they send me to is the same as the webpage I am on, but with a "#" at the end of it. I run a full scan on Bitdefender and it found a few things which got deleted but the ads are still here.
I have googled the issue, but did not find anything yet.
Suggestions and solutions welcome, thank you.
