I'm using Mozilla Firefox on my PC. When I search something using google a list of results get displayed, till then it functions properly. But when I right click or left click on any of the links from the results fetched, some other URL gets placed into the address bar of browser instead of the expected URL in a browser and a blank webpage gets appears. I'm not getting why this is happening.
