prefs.js -- malware inserted
The Firefox prefs.js file was quarantined by avast yesterday. Message indicated malware had infected the file. Now when I click on the Firefox icon the MSN browser comes up. How can I get back to using Firefox safely? Can I uninstall Firefox, then re-install it to make the problem go away?

What did the Avast error say? What did you modify any parts of Firefox itself?

For some Firefox (and Thunderbird) users who use Avast or AVG briefly had these scanners quarantine the prefs.js file even though Avast/AVG said they fixed the False Positive issue the day before.
If you still have the prefs.js file you can out it back in your Profile.
