every time I open mozilla up I get this redirect virus. My AVG catches it and secures it, but it just keeps coming back along with a ton of pop-ups. I have another computer running Mozilla and do not have this problem. I have uninstalled and re-installed and it still is there.

You may have ad / mal-ware. Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

In order to remove the virus from Firefox I might also suggest using other scanners to remove this from the installation and to preserve personal data in your profile (ie bookmarks)

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one. Windows 8 has antivirus built-in already.
