When I opened AOL mail it switched to an address beginning with "walmart.giftcards-info.online". I can't get rid of it and FIrefox says it is a "deceptive site"

When I opened AOL mail it switched to an address beginning with "walmart.giftcards-info.online". I mistakenly clicked on OK and now can't get rid of it and FIrefox says it is a "deceptive site". I can no longer get into AOL mail. How do I fix this?

What address do you normally use for AOL mail, and does this one work, or does it get diverted?

https://mail.aol.com/

Sorry, what did you click on? Did it install any add-ons? Let's check on that:

You can view, disable, and often remove unwanted or unknown extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Command+Shift+a (Windows: Ctrl+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
  • type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return

In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions.

Then cast a critical eye over the list on the right side. Any extensions Firefox installs for built-in features are hidden from this page, so everything listed here is your choice (and your responsibility) to manage. Anything suspicious or that you just do not remember installing or why? If in doubt, disable (or remove).

Any improvement?
