Did you check the home page setting?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

You can also try to reset all prefs to the default values.

Hay tres maneras evitar a esta situacion. Permites Firefox guardar los cookies de Google (para Google siguirle en sus caminos internet) o agregas Google a sus menu Windows 8 (para Google siguirle en sus caminos de internet y mas). O cambias su pagina homepage a otra pagina de buscar diferente que Google. Me preferia lo ultimo porque si bastante personas cambiar sus paginas desde Google por bing, o algo, quizas la gente en Google aprenderia muestrar mas respeto para la gente que pasan para sus paginas. Es interesante que nadie ha mencionado el sujeto de 'spyware' que funciona en una manera simular a este script que Google esta utilizando. En otras palabras, mal. Pero Google ha encontrado un tipo de estatura "Dios" aqui, estan muy involuncrado con todo que se toque en el net, muchas veces estan pagando la gente que reglan su browser tambien. Quien va decir mal de ellos?
