Visiting the link will open a window which takes over and cannot be closed. It appears to try and exploit a bunch of security flaws. Marking s-s for now since visiting the link will DOS your computer with NSFW stuff.

It appears to be a redirect to http://lm.loldongs.eu/ aka Last Measure.  Last Measure is hardly secret.  See e.g. bug 349392.

One of Last Measure's tricks is to pop up alerts when it thinks you're going for close-window shortcuts such as Ctrl+W or Alt+F4.  The original code was Windows/IE specific; here's a cleaned up version.

The solution here is bug 59314 or bug 61098.
well ctrl-w not works .. i tried and even after i force closed from tasks when i opened again firefox it start again
Given any opportunity to open popup browser windows -- such as a click anywhere in the page -- Last Measure will open SIXTEEN of them.  This is probably more than we should allow per click.
Filed bug 550238 for the popups-per-click issue.
I can't reproduce bsmedberg's experience, but that might be because I have Flash and Java disabled.
We already disallow these.  Go us.
Please test it in nightly

I think this is no longer an issue after Bug 61098 fix...
