I'm having this issue on my main comp for about 3-4 days now. At first I thought it was Malware too, so ran MalwareBytes in safe mode among other things and decided to give up after nothing is found. I'm running MS Security Essentials, fully updated too.

I finally switched to chrome and hoped the problem would solve itself. Now my laptop, which is literally a clean install from 2 weeks ago (I use it to write up for work only, no internet, except to literally google research and look up wikipedia.) has begun doing it with Firefox too.

Reinstalling firefox fixed the issues on both comps for a matter of hours before it popped up again.

Win XP and Win7 ISP: Rogers XP machine had older ver of FF, when it happened I upgraded, still same thing - W7 machine has had newest for 2 weeks. W7 machine is running AVG

No idea what else could be causing it.

And not a few mins after this, another post online suggests turning of XULRunner in Mozilla add ons. And sure enough its fixed it on BOTH comps.

I wonder when that was installed in my old version of FF (hadn't been updated in a good year because Mozilla bullied Wizz RSS and forced its removal in updated versions of FF)

Eitherway, no idea if turning off XULRunner will cause anything bad, but it fixes my ability to google.

How do I turn off XULRunner? I've had this problem for a couple of months now (happens every time I click a link from any browser) and its completely annoying. I haven't tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but rumor has it...it won't work anyway. I'm willing to try about anything.
