This type of behaviour can be caused by malware. Try running several malware scanners. It is best to run several as each will pick up things that the others miss. Some scanners you can try are:

Thanks for the reply!!! Actually, i already do have Ad Aware but it did not affect anything yet. But one question...? Why does other browser still work efficiently, and no redirect or jump message come. Will try the other scanners for the time being.

With thanks!

Thank you but still even after various scans it is impossible to avoid those re routing. Can't get to the search i need, tough all history or bookmark pages do not have this problem.

Thanks Tony.... For the moment, I am going to try to clear it, and get assistance from above forums. Just as a fact.... The google search is the part infected by this redirecting problem on Firefox only, while Yahoo, and Bing's msn, or others work fine. 'Explorer 7 doesn't have this problem at all from all search engines.' Thanks for the advice and assistance.

Yes the link posted from Tony is great, However, I recommend to run a disk clean and in my case it does work. The redirect or jum from Google virus did go away.

Thanks to try and give feed back anytime!
