I am getting apparently random redirects to mostly r.svrtrack.com, there has been one other.
I checked my addons and installed programs and can't find anything unexpected.
I have scanned with Malwarebytes and Windows Security and they can't find anything.
I haven't captured a screenshot, will do so next time it happens.
Pls halp, Tim

Could be extension related.
You can also check the connection settings.
- Options/Preferences -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.
See "Firefox connection settings":

Just an update,
I didn't want to tear Firefox down completely, (I don't have time to rebuild it properly) so I took some advice and removed some add-ins.
There were no addins that looked dangerous - I only had ones from the Mozilla store - but removing some of them seemed to do the trick. I THINK it was the Acrobat one that caused the problem.
When I have more time to set it up properly I will do a clean install of Firefox. I will update this if the problem happens again. Thanks for your help.
I had the problem of redirection of browser to bing. The way I solved the problem was to hit on gear symbol on upper right under toolbar then hit home. Under new windows and tabs, make sure the two boxes say Firefox Home (default).
