Weird price tag icon on my WP blog on Firefox (2 posts)

    I just went to one of my blog posts using Firefox on Mac and noticed lots of links created with odd price tag icons next to them. Here's a sample: http://www.davesink.com/bob-dylans-tempest/
    On other browser's it looks fine, but on all my blog posts certain names (i.e. Bob Dylan) are linked to shopping sites that I never built links to. It looks crappy and cheap. Does anyone know what's doing this and how I can get rid of them? The posts themselves don't contain links, so I have no idea where they're originating from.
    Thanks for any help.

    Though some of the tools I used show no infection/ malware, your description of the problem certainly raises questions of being intruded. And your description also points to adware that usually do not show up in security analysis tools.
