Question: Popup keeps appearing asking for email pwd.

Visited a state park website & tried to email a map. 2 weeks later started getting a popup with an "@" asking for email pwd. Shows the email address i was trying to send map to. Behind it another popup of the map.

I close it but it keeps reappearing. Malaware Bytes didn't find anything. It's just a nuisance but i'd like to get rid of it.

iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10)

In the Safari menu > Preferences > Extensions. Extensions add functionality to Safari. Only delete if you see something suspicious like an app you did not download intentionally.
