Hello, When I open a new tab on firefox, it is redirecting to "homepage-web.com/?s=hp&m=tab"... which my McAfee SiteAdvisor is flagging as a "suspcious site". I've searched on the firefox help forums and looked at my add ons to see if there was anything dodgy in there... all I have are the one's I installed (i think): 1 click YouTube Video downloader 2.3.8 (I've had this over a month before this tab issue started). McAfee Site Advisor 3.7.2 Right inbox for Gmail 3.6.0 McAfee Security Scan Plus 1.0 (disabled)

hi magic_mj, you could install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customizations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

in addition it would probably be good to run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner, which are specialised in detecting adware and browser hijackers. Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware
