Wordpress site hacked but only in Firefox

Several keywords on my site have suddenly developed "links" to affiliate ads. This only appears on Firefox browser though. No sign on it on Explorer or Chrome.

There is no visible script or coding that I can find.

Any ideas.

There are some extensions that include TextEnhance ads. Try going to the following page and disabling ALL extensions. Only keep enabled the ones that you can't browse without.

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Add-ons > Extensions category

After restarting Firefox, test again. Any luck?

Also do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
