This is weird but Firefox works fine on other sites, but
for some reason on yahoo firefox starts to redirect to
strange sites like some chinese sex site also with
a bunch of pop ups, also it goes to other sites like
buy fake looking security camera's etc.. it's acting
like I got spyware on a windows machine but, Im using
Ubuntu and Firefox... help. I also tried sweeper and
bleachbit to delete all kinds of cookies but nothing.

Install NoScript for Firefox, and then unblock *only* what you require access to day-in, day-out and this will never happen again.
