Mailto links in websites not working correctly in FF 36.0.1

I know this isn't a new problem as I've found lots about it in the Internet but I haven't found anything that will fix it! This problem only started for me when I updated to Firefox36, until then everything was working perfectly, but as I've seen references to the problem going back to 2007 that may be a red herring.

I'm using Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit on an HP ProBook. When I click on a mailto link in a web page I have a Windows Internet Explorer window open saying "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed".

I was clicking the link in Firefox, Firefox is my default browser, The Bat is set as my default program for handling mailto commands and everything was in 100% working order until I updated to v36.

On another computer also running Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit with Firefox 36.0.1 this problem does not occur! Clicking on a mailto in that works just as it should. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but it made no difference - the problem wouldn't go away.

It's driving me barmy!  ;-)

Ever since the FF 36.0.1 'update' suspicious websites are opening FF 36.0.1 windows in the background. Example: http://www.yousftware.com/kLBqRyPx/videoupdater?SiteID=278 which is reported as a malicious site by Malwarbytes AND Avast! Internet Security is somehow able to get into FF and open windows.

My wife's desktop pc was hit by what I'd call "A Super Bundle" which unleashed total havoc on her pc. It took me a great deal of work 2 full days chasing down all the crap this apparent harmless download created. My approach; I'd describe it as it was like pealing back layers of an onion until everything was removed. Or to return her machine back as close to normal as I could. One of the "Leftovers" from this attack is something called; www-searching.com which has hijacked all the browsers on her computer. Nothing has worked I mean nothing. A lot of time and a great deal of effort has gone into destroying this menace now I'm asking for help.

Thanks for your time. Doug Sr.
