in the following directory

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\components\

As suggested by BC's mods, taking a quick look at your FireFox's directory and seeing what files changed are a good start -- followed by some elective file surgery.

So far, the redirects are not occurring, but I've only removed the file about 10 minutes ago. I'll probably update this topic in 24 hrs.
