I'm having issues with Mozilla Firefox link redirects.

The issue was affecting all browsers originally (Firefox, Chrome, IE, Opera) but now only appears to affect Firefox.

I have run multiple programs to attempt removal:  MalwareBytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, Kaspersky TDSSkiller, Rkill, HitmanPro, Zemana AntiMalware Portable.

I have removed my HDD and dropped it into an external bay and run the same software and it is still there when I place it back into my pc.

I click on links on any webpage, I get a new tab of the page I was just on and the original tab redirects to various URL's as I have listed below.

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit OS, on a DELL laptop that is approximately 2.5 years old.

Let me know if all went well.
