Try to disable or uninstall the Ask toolbar extension.Read this answer in context 108
Go to Tools Add-ons in there, you may notice the ASK logo. If you have the Trillian ToolBar that could be causing it also. I just found out it is associated with ASK.Go to answer 13

I too uninstalled the Ask toolbar and it helped. You must close all firefox windows before uninstalling. And I didn't need to go into firefox safe mode.
