Invitation to visit Marxism site
Recently when I started typing my mail address, mail.live.com, when I would type the 'm' a site called marxists.org started appearing at the top of the sites list. I'd never visited this site, and have no desire to, but as I was used to mail.live.com appearing at the top of the autocomplete results, I ended up clicking on this site a couple of times.
Has Firefox promoting political sites recently or is there some other explanation for this?

Thanks for your response. Shift+Del seems to just remove it on that occasion, but then it's right back next time I start typing.
I'm also wondering why it appeared to begin with seeing as I never searched for or visited this site.
