I get redirected from search engine answers to pages i dont want, how do i fix this?

When i select a answer form a search engine, a "curly tail" thing pops up at the top of the page, and it redirects me to a page i didn't select.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

You can find the connection setting here: Tools > Options > Advanced : Network : Connection If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then select No Proxy

See "Firefox connection settings" in Server Not Found - Troubleshoot connection problems


Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database.
