This is probably due to a problem with an add-on. For details of how to troubleshoot that see https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes

Some AVG add-ons have been known to cause this problem.

If you post your extensions list then maybe we can tell which extension is causing it.

The AVG Safe Search extension has been reported to cause this issue.

  1. Click the orange Firefox button and select Add-ons to open the add-ons manager
  2. In the list of extensions click on AVG Safe Search to select it, then click the Disable button
  3. Restart Firefox
