Default Google attempted redirect in Firefox?

Only in Firefox: Whenever I make a search on Google, then click on the result, the correct url comes up with a lot of code following it, causing a 404 error. It seems to go to the correct website, but because all that code is being added to the url address it comes up with an error. If I connnect from the cache in Google it works fine.

There is no other indication that anything is wrong, if I use Yahoo it connects just fine. Other computers using the same router do not have the problem

I've tried: Malware Bytes, Super Anti-Spyware, and Norton NPE, and I already have avast, Spyware Blaster already on my computer.

I downloaded GooredFix and have a logfile.

Please help - it's really annoying

Thanks
Amy

I want you to run TDSSKiller so refer to the below for how to do so.

TDSSkiller - How to run


Please also download MBRCheck to your desktop
  • Double click MBRCheck.exe to run (vista and Win 7 right click and select Run as Administrator)
  • It will show a Black screen with some information that will contain either the below line if no problem is found:
    • Done! Press ENTER to exit...
  • Or you will see more information like below if a problem is found:
    • Found non-standard or infected MBR.
    • Enter 'Y' and hit ENTER for more options, or 'N' to exit:
  • Either way, just choose to exit the program at this point since we want to see only the scan results to begin with.
  • MBRCheck will create a log named similar to MBRCheck_07.16.10_00.32.33.txt which is random based on date and time.

Do not stop...continue on with the below now.

After staying up all night, I think I found the problem. I ran Firefox in safe mode, disabling everything, and finally got Google working.

It seems that one or more of the extensions were the problem, so I got rid of everything not absolutely necessary. It makes sense because every malware and virus scan came up with no threats detected.

Thanks so much - everything I did run made me aware of all the threats, and changed my internet surfing habits.
