This issues persists mainly on my two most frequently visited sites, Facebook, and deviant art. When I click any random link on any random page, the link would send me back to my home page, as if i had clicked the back button when i hadnt. I cant specify what links specifically, but it has done it twice on my facebook home page, once on a google search and several times on Deviant Art. On Deviant Art, I was several pages into the site when i clicked on a users gallery and it sent me right back to google, the back button wasnt active, but the forward button was, when i clicked the FORWARD button it went right back to my last page, just as if i has hit BACK. This problem has only been apparent for the last 2 days since the 29th, and only after i installed the last security update provided by the firefox team. seems like a bad coding error that mixes up and redirects addresses, that would be my guess.
