Does the adult site load as soon as you open Firefox? Or does it happen randomly after Firefox has been open for a while?

Also, try to Restore to the Default home page and see if that helps.

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 ..........
