I've recently noticed that Google is intercepting my old bookmarks and displays some stupid screen trying to get to do something. I don't ever use Google search but I do have Google Translate as a plugin on Firefox. What's the problem here?

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
