Hi,
Since this is my first post please pardon me for posting in wrong section, if I did. :)
 
From last few days I am noticing strange problems in firefox

On each boot, when I open Mozilla Firefox, few tabs and windows (around 3-4) automatically gets open.
They contain the following address
https://photos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/hellocdn.html?v=1
I have searched a bit and found out its a some kind of malware (AFAIK).
But i don't know the root cause of this problem and how eliminate it.
 
Any help to remove this malware is much appreciated

Welcome aboard p22002758.gif

 

Is Firefox the only browser affected?
