Somehow I contracted "coupon downloader", which insinuated itself into
Firefox. It reloads an open page, and replaces certain words with popups
containing links.

I'd neglected to install Viper on that machine. Vipre found it and
eliminated it, which required a reboot. But the extension to FF
remained. It was easily removed via the add-ons manager.
