It was Adblock Plus. I removed it and replaced with Adblock Pro and it seems to work fine.

I am having the same issue with Safari; however, I get the message with only Adblock running. All other extensions are turned off.

Mine was Smooth Gestures 0.17.14 - I've been using this extension forever without issue. Odd that this is happening from so many different, long trusted extensions.
