What’s With The Imdb Spam On All Of My Pages (firefox)?

A few weeks ago I noticed that there was a little IMDB notification icon on my Facebook next to my Friend Request icon, Messages icon and Notification icon. It’s always lit up (as if I have a notification) and when I click on it it’s just an advertisement for watching tv and movies online. Then I noticed that it was on Google as well! Right under the Search Bar there is an ad that says ‘Exclusive: Watch Free Movies & TV Shows using IMDb’. It’s also on YouTube.
It’s extremely annoying and I can’t find any way to get rid of it (Googling anything to do with ‘IMDB’ only yields results for different films).
Can someone tell me what it is, how it got onto all of my computer, how I get rid of it, and is it even affiliated with IMDB (because it doesn’t seem like them to infect people’s computers with this virus-like thing)?
