Sounds like you picked up a dose of Malware.

In addition to the above :

Both mapseasy.net and 'searchsafe' are broswer hijjackers and, like
'the-edmeister' indicated, malware.

Go to the Firefox menu (≡) => Add-ons => Extensions

( Mac  : Command + Shift + A)

and look for any other unfamiliar or suspicious looking extensions.

When you find any : remove them.

Do the same here : for Windows => Control Panel for Mac and Linux => System Preferences

However : most malware will be 'hiding' somewhere , so let's run malware scans, hence you should run the malware scans that are listed in the article 'the-edmeister' gave you a link to.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. They all work differently - what one program doesn't pick up, the other might.
