You have a vulnerability to a particular unwanted redirect adware exploit
you have a unique (only firefox) vulnerability to mediahub redirect. Malwarebytes and others can find and delete components, but it can reconstitute. Interestingly, it popped up in your answer.
- Shockwave Flash 26.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0
If you are pointing out a bug in the software and do not need support, I think you should should report it here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ .

Am I right assuming that you are talking about this :
According to your post you have already ran malware scans (good for you !), but have you also done this :
Go to the 3-bar menu => Addons => Extensions and look for any unfamiliar or suspicious looking extensions, like e.g.:
SafeSearch Incognito SearchAssist Incognito
When you find any : remove them.
Also look in : 3-bar menu (or 'Tools') => Options => Advanced => Network tab => Under : 'Offline Web Content and User Data'
Do the same in Windows' Control Panel => Programs.
However : most malware will be 'hiding' somewhere , so let's run (some more) malware scans :
Further information can be found in this article :
Run most or all of the listed malware scanners.
They all work differently - what one program doesn't pick up, the other might.
If, however, you've already done all of the above, you can of course ignore this post.
Do you have the latest version of uBlock Origin yet ?
(the system details in your other thread show an older version)
