at this point, i am still getting re-directed to linkbucks, but not nearly as frequently as it had been when i first contacted you. now the re-directs seem few & far in between, but still pop up on me every once in awhile. in the beginning it was just constant.

Hello mindydee113

I want you to reset firefox back to defaults, this will remove everything from Firefox

I will let you keep your bookmarks so to do that you can go here - Export BookMarks

Now to reset firefox do the following.

  • At the top of the Firefox window, click the "Firefox" button,
  • go over to the "Help" sub-menu
    • (on Windows XP, click the Help menu at the top of the Firefox window) and select "Troubleshooting Information".
  • Click the "Reset Firefox" button in the upper-right corner of the Troubleshooting Information page.
  • click "Reset Firefox" in the confirmation window that opens.
  • Firefox will close and be reset. When it's done. Click "Finish" and Firefox will open.

restart the computer and check firefox for me now

I re-set firefox like you asked me to & i think that may have done the trick. So far so good. I was away from my computer for the weekend, so I am just getting back to it. I re-set firefox on Friday. Immediately after, I was clicking around and the linkbucks re-direct never came up. Today is now Monday. I have once again been clicking around on different news sites & have yet to be re-directed! Firefox has changed a little & I have to re-do all my add on's, but that is a small price to pay to get rid of that re-direct. It was a pain in the behind! At this point I guess I should just say thank you for all your help & keep my fingers crossed that we have foiled the problem. If it rears it's ugly head again, I guess I will be back. Other than that, thank you Gringo! You have been a huge help & God bless you!
