    I keep getting this alert bar pop up at the bottom of my screen when browsing certain forums asking me do I want to open it?

    I have tried Googling, but to no avail.

    Is this suspicious?

    Shall I just open it next time to see what happens #worstideaever

    OK, is that good or bad?

    And how do I stop it from happening?

    Well you don't really want ads.

    You can use a plugin like scriptblocker (im sure something like that exists).
