I'm a new MAC user, and I noticed that when I go onto sites, some random words are now hyperlinks. (I think that's what they're called). Words are highlighted in green and double underlined.

Is it because I went on questionable (AKA adult) sites?

What should I do? Besides the obvious and watch were I surf?

That's normal. It's because you are not logged into or signed up for that particular site or forum, and I'm not sure why sites do that. This site does when you are not signed in, as it shows up when performing searches.

When you hover over the links, do bubble "things" pop up with more content about that word?

View the attached picture. Is that what you are referring to?

Something very very similar to what you are seeing: Infolinks - The Best PPC In Text Advertising Solution

So no, you did not break it youre just fine

And here is who provided the ad in my picture
