Hello Mike.

You need to scan your computer for virus/spyware infections. Although, you may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

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. - Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - SuperAntispyware - Spybot Search & Destroy - Ad-Aware Free - Windows Defender: Home Page ..........
