When I click on a link or picture to be taken to another site within a website the browser takes me to a different site. Also I often am taken to google and a serch of something similar to the site I clicked on. If I hit the site several times I might finally go to the correct site instead of directed to another site. Update of firefox today did not fix problem

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to a website
2.Click on picture in website to be taken to that site with picture
3.Taken to another website
Actual Results:

Taken me to the correct website or link I clicked on within the webpage I was looking at or in
