As soon as as I start web browsing on Mozilla Firefox , I recently start getting this strange message in a small alongated window -----

-------

this strange window also has an empty cell for a username and one for a Password.
I have installed the following Anti-virus- scanners- All of these are NOT finding this Intruder Virus program- Has anyone herd of this one before ? - https//app.mediaplex.com

You didn't say which AV you tried. Not all AV programs remove malware. Have you installed any new software that may have contained the malware? Have you checked Task Manager to see if any suspicious programs are running in background?

Download & run AdwCleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...

It would still be worth running ADWCleaner because you might have malware present. It's only a small program that runs from the file:

EDIT:
See below. It would be worth running MalwareBytes Anti-Malware too as this looks for different things:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Had the same problem with Firefox but not with Chrome. First ran CCleaner (free) to clean up any cookies (Firefox, Chrome and Edge), then ran Malwarebytes (free) and the problem appears to have gone away.

I had the very same window (https//app.mediaplex.com is requesting your username and password) a few days ago suddenly popping up when I started Microsoft Edge.
It was clearly related to Microsoft Edge and after just cancelling or closing it it came back roughly every 30 minutes.
How can I type in a username/password for something totally unknown anyway ??

As my AV Kasperski did NOT detect this BS popup after a full scan I asked my PC Guru to try to eradicate this unwanted monkey. The frequency of popping up might have drastically increased otherwise.
He managed to wipe it out after installing and running CCleaner (www.piriform.com) and HitManPro
