Please try the following:
1. Install the latest nightly if you haven't already, from http://nightly.mozilla.org/
2. Create a new profile and switch to it. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Managing-profiles#w_creating-a-profile
3. Restart in safe mode. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Safe+Mode#w_how-to-start-firefox-in-safe-mode

Does you still encounter the bug? If the answer is yes please provide a test case i.e. a file or link to a web page that can help us confirm the bug.

Thank you! The problem also happens in Nighty build (V. 27a1). But creating a new profile (as you described) seems to resolve it on both version (Nighty and release V. 24) without the need to start in safe mode.

To reproduce the problem:
- Have a tab loading a web page.
- Click on "+ CELAD (toutes les agences)" in the following link: http://www.celad.com/nos-offres-demplois/main/table
- You will be redirected to mozilla main page.
(The link is just for demonstration, it happens on other sites too)

Thanks!

Can you look in Firefox -> Options and tell what settings are different from defaults? Did you change any settings in about:config?

It doesn't seem to be any difference. And I didn't change any settings in about:config
Just another information, this problem started with Firefox 16 and continued until this release (24).

Thank you.

The reset firefox option in about:support should help to fix a broken profile or a new profile as already used.
We do not know which preference got changed and why this happened (probably an extension) and there is nothing that we can do without this information
