Hi, I just downloaded Firefox to my Mac. Everything is updated. The browser works like this:

I type in a URL.

First, a full-screen pop-up window that asks me to install an Add-on. (I read the Info - looks like an advertisement? - What is this? - Is this Normal? -Is this going to happen all the time?

Next, a series of "redirect" URLs flash across the search line...

Next, I end up at some completely random site.

So, my basic question as a new-to-Firefox user is, as politely as possible, WTF???

My first experience of Firefox...Do I feel safe? NO. I looked at the Help/FAQ section and, apparently Firefox Support hasn't encountered this issue?

I've been forced to jump into forum discussions to make it work. SUCKS. So, is it malware that was downloaded with Firefox? I don't know. Should I toggle something in about:config to "true" or to "false"? I don't know.

If this "redirect" feature is just part of Firefox, PLEASE just tell me. I'll use a different browser.

First, NEVER install anything unless you know what it is.


Not Redirecting properly = cookies


Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem,

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

While you are in Troubleshoot(Safe) mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

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