I am having problems with Firefox. it is slow, crashing, search hijacked adverts on pages, phishing websites opening in new tabs. Defaulting not helping.

Posted

Browsing is slow. Advertising small frames appears on the webpages I am visiting. At the top left of those ads frames it shows by TurboMac. And phishing or unwanted websites open in new tab. It also happens that a phishing website takes over the website I am visiting. And after a while Firefox crashes. I restored Firefox to its default, but it did not help.
