Default Virus or advert????

Sorry if this is wrong forum, but it only shows here: I'm reading this forum on Win 7 laptop with firefox and I constantly get new page open with message my browser is outdated and I should click "here" to get update. It looks like a virus since my firefox is updated and I get it only here, not other pages or websites. How do I get it fix? I'm not stupid to click on the link, but it gets annoying after few times.

Its an advert which could be a virus.

Thanks, but I already have that, disabled at the moment since some websites don't work correctly. It seems it comes from this particular forum page. Oh well, will need to do some virus scanning later and up security a bit.
