When ever I click on a search link from my search results I am being redirected to some kind of ad or inappropriate website. This began this morning after Firefox installed it's updates
Every time Firefox opened

The add-on "4.0.50524.0 " looks like crap. Uninstall that add-on or start FF in Safe Mode, and check "Disable all add-ons".
"4.0.50524.0" is probably the Silverlight plugin, so no need to remove it. -- 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.
