    Hi Guys
    I have, again, somehow gotten a malware program on firefox, or should I say google.com.
    I should start with giving the back-ground
    OS X 10.9.5 and browser is firefox 38.0.5, preferred search engine google.
    When I try to search "normally in the search bar for anything, than an error message comes up "problem loading page" could not establish connection to server!
    If I go on my bookmarked google.co.uk page and search from there all is fine! It only happens with google.com serches!!!?
    If I "allow" FF to redirect it leads to > flash player PRO <, a malware site
    How can I fix this WITHOUT uninstalling FF completely and reinstalling it, loosing all my passwords??
    All the malware removal programs seem for Windows and I don"t want to install even more malware on the machine
    All help and tips welcome
