urls I input to one website are changing only in the firefox browser on one computer
I sometimes to to the website http://revcom.us by typing revcom.us. I went there last night no problem. Today, The url changes to this: http://revcom.us/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/static/css2012/basic-page.css
and it appears that the page automatically reloads at least twice per second adding another static/ every time endlessly.
My computer is running osx Yosemite 10.10.5. Firefox on my other Yosemite Macs is not doing this.

Possibly related: I downloaded the program BitTorrent last week which has been changing my search engine and homepage to yahoo on firefox, safari and chrome. When I go into preferences and change it back, after restarting the browser or computer, yahoo has been put back. I just uninstalled Bittorrent.
(I have not downloaded any torrents.)
Are you still having the issues?
Have you contacted BitTorrent support?
I am not positive the two are related. But, I would not trust bittorrent support since the offered the spammy app during their installation which I tripped over.
Can anyone recommend where I can get help for this problem?
Is it only that one site you have an issue with ? If so you could consider as a workaround using an alternative browser just for that site.
Try using Firefox in its safemode and with all plugins set to never activate.
