Ever since the FF 36.0.1 'update' suspicious websites are opening FF 36.0.1 windows in the background.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Mal-ware can come from anywhere. Did you do the update thru Mozilla?

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.

Well, I have run Malwarebytes--paid subscription that loads with Windows--ZERO results; Avast! Internet Security--paid subscription that loads with Windows--ZERO results; downloaded and ran Microsoft Safety Scanner--ZERO results; downloaded and ran AdwCleaner--said there were eight .vir files--quarantined them; downloaded and ran Hitman Pro--found six tracking cookies--set them to blocked, and then deleted all cookie files.

So, wait and see if it happens again.

Thanks for the tips.

@JohnQM in follow up for the escalation request, can you confirm that the malware scans have minimized the issue you were originally running into?
