Firefox opens http://0.0.0.0 and http://0.0.0.1 on startup

Posted

When I open Firefox, instead of showing my homepage, it opens up the following two URLs:

http://0.0.0.0 http://0.0.0.1

This also happens with all my other web browsers so I suspect an application is tampering with my network settings but I don't know how to go about fixing this.

Any help is appreciated.
