Steps:

Google "mozilla firefox"
Notice second big link banner at top (not sidebar) for free-mozillafirefox.com.
Click this.
Notice that there's 3 firefox banners of varying sizes (hosted at
http://www.temptationisland4.com), and all link to the same location.
Visit the location linked to.
Notice this has p2p in the url, and asks for you to 'register', to:

"Get instant access to the leading P2P software which brings together the
largest collection of audio, video, images, ebooks and software that you
instantly can download to your hard-drive. Plus get access to free bonus
software and online tutorials that show you and teach you how to use them, how
to burn music CDs or DVDs, Video CDs and create your own CD labels."

I'm of the opinion that this isn't a good thing.

Further info: Free-mozillafirefox.com still works and has a title, but it's
frame (which I didn't notice was a frame before) is down:
http://www.temptationisland4.com/Mozillafirefox.html

This is what forwarded you to the p2p site.
