It's redirecting to this sites

Sounds like a virus or malware. I would run an AV style program and a malware program to ensure your machine is clean! – Dave Sep 7 '12 at 8:28
what is the procedure to check system is clean? suppose if it is a windows system then I can use any anti virus, but it is Linux system so what should I do now? – max Sep 7 '12 at 8:41
Did you tried reinstalling ? Does the problem occurs in other browser also ? – Ankit Mishra Sep 7 '12 at 9:04
ok then I will reinstall the browser. – max Sep 7 '12 at 9:14
Does the superuser page show up and is then redirected or are you pushed directly at the other sites? There's a pretty good possibility that you either have a rogue AddOn (restart Firefox without AddOns), or your DNS/Network settings are poisoned (you're not running the GUI as root, are you?). – Bobby Sep 7 '12 at 9:47
