    I disagree the site has something going on, all controls in firefox was broken IE:Slider, shortcuts, and the ability to close firefox was lost.(Closed through the terminal) I did not stick around long on the site.
    kaspersky is also involved now.
    See uRock's advice to clean your firefox.

    Doing that it seems to have fix the issue with that link. I deleted that folder. So there was some malware in .mozilla folder?

    I'm not sure what was causing it, but definitely something wrong in the profile's configuration.

    I had also found some old stuff on my own that kaspersky is now monitoring.(Not pertaining to the site owner.)
