Any website with anything to do with Facebook is re-directing to Myspace

Posted

I've had this issue before and it does go stop eventually, but for a while facebook re-directs to myspace and any site with a facebook link re-directs to a 404-myspace error. Is this something wrong with me or something wrong with firefox?

URL of affected sites

http://www.facebook.com, http://www.huffingtonpost.com

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.
