Am I being hacked ?

I was using firefox in Windows xp earlier.
I clicked on the Independent and while waiting for it to load saw the little window bottom left showing what was happening to notice a referral to paypal - weird or what.
The Independent has no paywall and I am puzzled as to what is going on ?

Yes, I see those too on this latest version of Firefox.

You should be Ok, if anyone tries to charge you for anything via PayPal it should pop up a window asking you to log in to PayPal.

Unless of course you stay logged in with a saved password, which is a bad idea - I never save any of my banking passwords, I think it's far safer to have to log in each time.

Don't see anything strange on the latest Firefox 6 beta running on my Macbook.
