Dear Sir,

It happen to me recently, when I put on middle button, Firefox sent me directly on new tab just opened. Or I want stay on the main search page(primary tab). I try to do Firefox Reset, Restart with Add-ons disable, Clear startup cache... Nothing. Especially, It happen to me when Firefox account is connected. All my computer do the same. I set up a new Ubuntu and install a new Firefox, but no account connected. I work correctly.

Best Regards. Sri

After waiting for solution, I thinking about Virus. I download ClamAV and scan my /home. Here the resultat :

sudo clamscan --infected --remove --recursive /home /home/xub/.cache/mozilla/firefox/qxwfacrz.default-release/cache2/entries/015F55537F45574FED551B70C2008FA3F2617A34: Txt.Coinminer.Generic-7150607-0 FOUND /home/xub/.cache/mozilla/firefox/qxwfacrz.default-release/cache2/entries/015F55537F45574FED551B70C2008FA3F2617A34: Removed. /home/xub/.mozilla/firefox/qxwfacrz.default-release/extensions/adblockultimate@adblockultimate.net.xpi: Txt.Coinminer.Generic-7150607-0 FOUND /home/xub/.mozilla/firefox/qxwfacrz.default-release/extensions/adblockultimate@adblockultimate.net.xpi: Removed.
