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.
1. It happens randomly after opening Firefox.
2. Have restored the home page.
3. Anything else I can do - I really don't want this irritation.....
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.
