The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

If the background of links is red then that is can be caused by an extension like SEO or SearchStatus that has the option set to highlight noFollow links.

You can check the options of such an extension.

You can click the icon on the Status bar to open the SearchStatus options and un-tick "Highlight NoFollow Links"
See http://www.quirk.biz/searchstatus/
If that didn't work then you need to check for other extensions that color noFollow links.
