    What used to happen was I would clik on the link to the download page, it would take me to the DL
    info, I'd press DL, and the DL Info stay up wil it downloads.


    But now when I press download, the tab I'm on changes to " About: blank ", and in a new tab opends up Roblox dot com.

    Why the hell does this happen!? has medifire been hacked? Does My Laptop have a Virus?

    is there anything I can do at all to stop Roblox from opening in a new tab?

    I'm afraid I'm not technically proficient enough to give you advice. The best you can do at this moment is pray.

    Are you using an adblocker? Roblox is apparently a game made by real people, so it may not be nefarious.

    Just keep pressing ALT + F4 until the problem goes away. Like rapid fire.

    I checked some archives I knew of, and it turns out they're pop-under ads, which adblockers sometimes miss. I got ads for Coral, which is a bookie. Run a couple scans if you're concerned, but you're likely alright.

    Roblox is what kids play when they don't have access to real games...
    Only person I know is my gf's niece and she plays FNaF on it. Pretty shady considering weird dudes "her age" who live in the same town as her keep making friends with her.

    Hilarious. 9.75/10

    Huh? No, it just means what you said was funny.

    My DLs are still getting corrupted by those evil Neopets, so I wouldn't be surprised if Roblox did the same.

    At least you don't have Runescape, that kills entire servers.

    Just right click the download button and select save link as. It may be annoying but at least it solves the problem
