How do I get ride of this? I JUST started seeing these adds and searched vdix and there weren't any programs but just an install file and I threw it in the trash and emptied the trash but I don't know if that was the right thing to do.

I found this Trouble with "vidx"

and this https://discussions.apple.com/message/25171579#25171579

but I don't use safari I use firefox, I opened up safari and didn't see anything.

On a side not I also have these ebay adds coming from the bottom and right hand side of the scren, idk if its related it might just be the site but idk.

Sounds like it could be an extension or add on installed on firefox, have a look through those to see if there is anything out of the ordinary in there and disable/ uninstall it.

Hope this helps
