My wife was looking for birdhouse designs and clicked on one address to see what they had. It is "Yardtreat.com." This evil web site has set something that makes any selection from a search page go to their web site. I have removed all cookies, history, cache, and it still goes to their web site. I have closed an restarted Firefox. I went to options and blocked cookies, cache, off-line data storage. I checked the about:config for something, but I didn't see anything about yardtreat.com.

First let's all start hating them. Now tell me how to kill it.
Still searching for the "Read My Mind and Do It" button.
