Hi ejhobby. I believe you should 1) Look at your Trend Micro settings and adjust them according to what you feel is necessary for you (I keep mine at maximum), and 2) I believe Firefox has a pop-up blocker if you look for it in either "settings" or "tools". Good fortune!

Your browser might be infected by malware. Try resetting the browser that redirects you to another website, i.e., Firefox:

Resetting your web browser for performance and website redirection issues

Then, enable the Trend Micro Toolbar to avoid these:
Enabling the Trend Micro Toolbar in Mozilla Firefox

Let us know if it works.
