Hi,

I've been experiencing a weird issue when I go to youtube.com from firefox. I type in youtube.com & FF sends me to what seems like the correct address: https://www.youtube.com. Then in 2-3 seconds later the URL gets something added at the end. It always looks similar to this: /post/Ugxw1V_F1zrIlrj3CP14AaABCQ. It seems Iike I got routed to an add. It's generally a topic or something I watched a video about in the past. The worse part is it just keeps reloading the same page every 2-3 seconds. You can not get off that page by hitting the youtube options on the left like Home-Trending- Library- My Videos etc. The only way to stop it is manually entering a period at the end of the .com. Youtube.com. if you take out that period that odd extension gets added again & you are back in a loop. I figured I must have a Firefox cookie issue. I deleted the cache, cookies & history yesterday. I still have the problem. If I go to youtube on Chrome it works perfectly. I just did a Malwarebytes scan & nothing came up as wrong. Do I have some type of Firefox bug or system error? If so does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks!

Try running FF in safe mode https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...sing-safe-mode

I'd also run something like Malwarebytes or Zemana AntiMalware to make sure there is not a browser hijacker involved.
