contents of google search bar are deleated when command to search is given

Posted

When I do an Internet search from the main Google website everything works fine. Any subsequent searches fail. I type my search words into the search box and press "enter" or click on the "search" button and instead of executing the search, the contents of the search bar are deleted.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I am not sure, I had a virus last week but I am fairly sure I delt with it. i also installed some new software that did a major update of my .net framework

This is usually caused by conflicting extensions. Try disabling some extensions to see if that fixes it: Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems
