in the last couple of days I have noticed that there are hyperlinks on certain Keywords and a whole bunch of websites where they never have been before and shouldn't be. they are all advertisements for something be it clothes or lessening your power bill or something else.

some of the keyword I have noticed it on is "register", "email", and "Christmas" there are more I am noticing daily. I have ran my virus scan and even tried another scan I downloaded, plus I have contacted the operator of one of the pages and they assure me there are no hyperlinks. Can you please help me with this? is it an add on I have chosen or is there something new you don't know about either. I hope this is sufficient for you, I can provide more info if I need to.

thanks... I kinda figured it was something like that too I ended up just backing up my bookmarks and starting over... I am willing to bet it was a proxy program that I installed, all is well now!!

hello, please uninstall all toolbars or other suspicious software that you can't account for in firefox > addons > extensions & in the windows control panel/programs section (there you can sort by install date and easily find what was added during the last few days)

How do you post a new topic here???? I finally just uninstalled FF from my computer as it's causing so many problems with Flash crashing, slowing down (freezing) etc. can't find any support for FireFox anywhere.
