redirecting to wrong page+unsolicitated adss


ever since i intalled dowloadhelper, the browser has been redirecting me to sponsered pages+ads on the bottom of every unsecured pages. I disintalled dlhelper, tryed to disinstal/reinstal firefox, ran every malware/spyware clean up sofware available for mac. Still redirect me almost every clic i do. So what can I do if i want to continue using firefox? cause I'm seriouly considering moving on to an other browser if it does'nt stop... thanks Gabriel

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
