I'm having google redirect problems in Firefox on Windows 7 64 bit. It's not every link that redirects, but I'm often (maybe once every ten results) redirected to spammy/junk sites. I've worked through the PC cleanup process, and this is my logfile from HijackThis:

Welcome to Lunarsoft! The log looks clean so far. Still feeling the symptoms?

Did malwarebytes return any infections? If yes, please post the log.

I'd recommend uninstalling any toolbars you have. Also, have you considered using Microsoft Security Essentials instead of AVG?

Hi there - thanks for the speedy help! Malwarebytes didn't return any infections (log posted below). I'm still having the problems, though - but I think I may have found a cause...

To give you a bit more info, it's only Firefox that has this issue: IE is fine. And looking closely at my history, the google result points briefly towards a URL that starts with 'google.ad.sgdoubleclick.net', which almost instantly directs you to a different site from the search result.

I don't have any toolbars installed but I checked my extensions anyway. I didn't recognise an extension called 'XULRunner 1.9.1'. It describes itself as 'XULRunner 1.9.1 is a Mozilla runtime package.' I disabled it, and the problem has disappeared. So that looks like it should be the culprit?

So I think I have two questions - first - and presuming it's malware - would I need to do anything to remove it beyond disabling the extension? It doesn't have a 'remove' button in the Firefox interface. Second, could you give me any recommendations for securing my Firefox installation in future?

In terms of MSE, I was running it a while ago and switched after an infection. Would you recommend giving it another try?

Check this out: xul runner 1.9.1 added mysteriously-redirects google-how remove | Firefox Support Forum | Firefox Help

XULRunner is not a Firefox extension, it's a framework for running apps in, which is the back end for Firefox. What you have is malware pretending to be a Firefox extension.

Brilliant catch. I just looked over this article on how to remove XUL Runner. You may wish to do the same to ensure you fully purge the malware from your computer.

This is the toolbar that I saw installed: O3 - Toolbar: LastPass Toolbar - {9f6b5cc3-5c7b-4b5c-97af-19dec1e380e5} - C:\Program Files (x86)\LastPass\LPBar.dll. Ultimately it's your call, though I've recommended avoiding toolbars at all costs with how they can mess with explorer.exe, especially on past Windows versions. I don't think this is true for Vista/7, however.

I also see you have AdBlock Plus. Out of curiousity which list are you using? I personally prefer and recommend EasyList. :)

I would definitely recommend MSE, especially over AVG. AVG has killed some computers in the past.

Wow! I did a double-take when I saw that screenshot showing XULRunner as an extension. Especially since it shows version 1.9.1 on Firefox 7.0.1 -- which is impossible.

Check this out: xul runner 1.9.1 added mysteriously-redirects google-how remove | Firefox Support Forum | Firefox Help

XULRunner is not a Firefox extension, it's a framework for running apps in, which is the back end for Firefox. What you have is malware pretending to be a Firefox extension.

There's a certain amount of mis-information in that linked thread, but the above comment is a pretty good summary explanation. The Wikepedia article (XULRunner) actually contains a good explanation too.

Malware

A Firefox extension called XULRunner 1.9.1 is a form of malware masquerading as XULRunner that redirects Google search links to different websites.[5][6][7]

...

On a user's Windows computer, the malware is stored in an unusual location in the Local AppData folder, rather than in the usual Firefox profile or program directories

It also seems to generate random GUIDs, unlike a genuine Firefox extension, which makes it a bit more difficult to eradicate cleanly.

Fantastic! Thanks for the help, everyone. Behaviour fixed, files cleared, so back to normal - and thank goodness for that!

Tarun: I'll swap out AVG for MSE this afternoon. Thanks for the recommendation. As for toolbars, it's always a balance of risk vs convenience. Personally, the benefit from Lastpass' toolbar (and system) is worth it to me. And I'm using Easylist too - it's great.

Big thank you everyone - I really appreciate it, and I've just made a small donation to show my gratitude.

If I might add my recommendations for securing Firefox: The number one thing is never install extensions from anywhere but the official Mozilla Add-ons site. Extensions have open-ended privileges, a bad one could take over your computer. Not accusing you of doing that, just saying it's a very bad idea.

To replace the AVG Linkscanner, install the Web of Trust extension. It may show some sites as bad that aren't, but I've never seen it show a bad site as good; it's not perfect, but nothing is. I disable the warnings and just go by the icon color that's displayed, but that's up to you.

I also use NoScript, but I admit it's a hassle. It does block a lot of exploits, though, you should look into it.
