Ok.

For some odd reason, just one day out of the blue, certain words here and across the web, are hyperlinked. I have tried right clicking them to see if the option to turn off the links is available, but I see nothing.

Any ideas?

This has happened before in the past, and something straightened out where the links went away, but I have no idea what occured to do that. And now it's doing it again.

Sorry, Lenore, I am not sure what you mean about certain words being linked across the internet.

It's random words. But they are clickable. Right now, the words 'Message body', 'attachment', a few words from previous posts like 'the internet' and 'occured' are hyperlinked.

It's annoying to say the least.

It's never happened to me on FF (it does on a few different sites, though). Are you sure it's not a setting on your computer?

If it is, I have no idea where it would be.

Depends on what browser you use. On Chrome, which is what I'm working off of right now, it's up in the top right corner, where the drop-down is that has my history & bookmarks & such. There's a link for settings.

Otherwise, I'd maybe do a Google search to see if there's any advice on excessive and/or intermittent hyperlinks?

I was having the same issue and I just found out it was a little bug on my computer that is allowing adware programs to install on my browsers

I only Googled around a little, so take this with a grain of salt but, from what I read, it's either Malware on your end(s) and/or you need download some kind of ad blocker (from a reputable & safe site) or try to disable ad-ons on your computer's browser settings.

I haven't gotten any of these advertisement hyperlinks on the FF Forums but I've seen them in other places. I'm not sure what to tell you.

EDIT: here is one of the forums I read via Google that discussed this issue. Don't know how much help it'll be but there it is :)
