Reproducible: Always
It sounds like you have adware installed on your machine. Any program running on your computer can launch popups in your default browser. Do you remember installing something from the internet around the time this started? Or do you have teenagers in the house who may have done so? Adware is often bundled with free things available on the internet -- the stuff you want is often just the bait for the adware hook.
