Firefox Redirect Problem

Unread postby zoyano » June 12th, 2010, 2:19 pm

Anytime I use the search engines in Firefox next to the address bar, if I click on one of the results it will sometimes redirect me to a page other than what the link is. I have tried running malwarebytes and Spybot which removed some things and and avira a/v which found nothing but I still have the redirect problem in FF. This does not occur in IE. I also tried removing the search plugins and reinstalling them, same issue exists. I also do not have the problem if I go straight to google.com to do the search. This is driving me nuts and I don't know what else to do. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Now that I've added the google search add-in for IE next to the address bar it occurs there if I use it as well. I'm not sure what's going on with the search engines from within the browsers.
