I cleared my browsing history and have the weather network as my home page. I updated Firefox and now the homepage seems to be a list rather than a web page, PLUS, I get a Google ad on it. Google then forces several steps to kill the ad and clicking on any of the Weather network page hotlinks brings another Google ad. I have Google Chrome also installed, but am not using it. Why is all this happening?
