I have a freshwater aquarium and my filter is producing bubbles that are floating on top of the water and sticking to the glass of my tank can anyone help to solve it?

what kind of fish do you have? what are your tank parameters? what other critters do you have in your tank? with out knowing this information I would guess that one of your parameters are off and a water change is in order.
I have guppy fishes and my tank is 16Lx8Wx10H inches I have no critters.
with this info I would look at your ammonia and chlorine levels both are toxic to fish and can cause the kind of bubbles I understand you to be suffering from. if ammonia is the issue i would recommend a large water change 50% to 80% and treating tank with a water conditioner. If it is chlorine I would recommend a dechlorinating water conditioner as treatment.
Thank you!
