When I open my browser or start another window in it, there appear strange chinese characters in the top of my browser (firefox).

Has anyone encountered the same problem, is it malware?

I read somewhere that the problem may be caused by the mcafee site advisor add-on.

If you have the McAfee Site Advisor extension, try disabling it.

I have not found a solution but here is a tip that will prevent the irritation of restarting Firefox if it happens:

 

Press the restore button (two squares) next to X, in the top right of the browser, then press the maximise button (square) next to X.
