No idea which one it was, but there might be a really awful ad on Fark. I think I may have accidentally clicked on an ad and about 8 windows opened up that couldn't be closed including a ransomware audio track & I had to reboot the computer to use Firefox again. I had no tabs open that weren't Fark.
