TextSRV Firefox (Mac) Issue

I just noticed that green underlined links are appearing on different websites I go to. They're showing on keywords like deals, dating and stuff like that. Forums, a site I write for, etc.

When I highlight the link, it says it's www.textsrv.com. I haven't clicked any of them and have not gone to any strange websites, downloaded anything weird or anything like that.

These highlights just appeared after I wrote an article and went back to take a look at it.

When I Google the problem, there's a mixture of comments on it being adware, a browser plug in and regular site advertising. I think we can rule the latter our here since our site never added it.

I'm using a newish iMac. Firefox. Updated recently.

Can anyone please help me out and tell me how to get rid of it? Thanks in advance.
