I am getting redirected to unknown sites whenever I open any site while using mozilla. Initially I thought that there is a problem with my device, but then I realized that this happens only when using mozilla, not with other browsers like chrome, IE, or opera. These sites are mainly having the message 'Ad by ShopDrop'.. I am pasting below links to few sites to which I get redirected to

hello, you have various malicious addons present. please perform all these steps:

  1. reset firefox (this will keep your bookmarks and passwords)
  2. afterwards go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions and in case there are still extensions listed there, disable them.
  3. finally run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner to make sure that adware isn't present in other places of your system as well.
