Often when I go to click on a link, the little hand does not come on, nor does highlight appear, and I am taken to a site such "PC Keeper" or a dating site.

Sometimes this happens, but other times it doesn't.

hello, this might be caused by adware or malware that is active on your system. please perform all these steps:

  1. reset firefox (this will keep your bookmarks and passwords)
  2. afterwards go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions and in case there are still extensions listed there, disable them.
  3. finally run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner to make sure that adware isn't present in other places of your system as well.
