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.

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
