It is obviosuly some sort of virus or adware, i run FF and have not got that, nor is it the sort of thing mozilla would do. Check your extensions and plugins, see if anything new has been added. Also run a scan with your antivirus, one with malwarebytes antimalware and scan with the tools rkill, security check, minitoolbox,adwcleaner and FSS which are available in the downloads section of this site. Make sure to check the correct settings before scanning and choose options for scanning and reporting but not removing threats until you can do more research about them. Once you have logs from those programs post them in a new thread in the "am i infected" or "virus removal logs" section of this forum. the standard settings used for the various scanners would be best determined by asking one of the staff on this site, they wil probably recommend standard settings which they will list for you. You could also scan with eset online scanner and with kaspersky virus removal tool , make sure when you look for these tools that you download from the correct website (the relevant antivirus company's website never a third party one) i am sorry i cannot remember the links to give you to get to the tools.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
