Googla ads on Firefox Homepage

A new ad has appeared on my FF Homepage, it's flashing away and informs me that my PCs performance is poor and invites me to click for more information. Clicking on a small arrow at the top informs me it's a Google ad and to remove it there's an uninstall process. However when I follow it a message appears telling me it can't proceed because my cookies aren't enabled...trouble i, they are enabled so I find myself stuck. Can anyone advise and by the way I have Adblock installed and it's working.

Thanks jock1e I've only got Google update there that's all. Updated MWB earlier to 20.2.1012 and ran a clear scan then.

Thanks rdave, actually I do use Chrome from time to time, having said that how would removing the update stop the ad?

I've only got the Google update showing in FF, just disabled it but the ad's still there.
