Hello Waseem.

You may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database. - Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - SuperAntispyware - Spybot Search & Destroy - Ad-Aware Free - Windows Defender: Home Page ..........

If it's a cross-browser problem, then it's not specific to Firefox, and any support you get here is going to be as good as you get anywhere else.

If it's not spyware, I really have no idea. You should get your computer checked by someone experienced. I recommend family members, since IT shops are paid :P
