Firefox goes to URL other than the one in the hyperlink.
When clicking on a hyperlink on a web page (Even "Go To Top" hyperlinks.) Firefox redirects window to an unrelated website. The only way to get to intended location is right click mouse and select "Open in new window" choice.

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your pc.
- please go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc).
- also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.
- finally, run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner, which are specialised in adware and browser hijackers.
No toolbars installed nor any unusual add-ons. Have run several as-ware & malware sweeps to no avail. Also checked mouse drivers and tried different mouse types with no changes.
