    Yes. Am still getting redirects. I don't get it often, but I notice it more often when I search for a product. For example: phones

    An amazon.com number 1 search listing brought me to------ http://compare.us.com/search/Phone/

    To explain more clearly: A google search for phones. Amazon.com is the first listing. I click and am redirected to -----http://compare.us.com/search/Phone/
    Do you think I should uninstall firefox and then install again?

    Hey Jay,

    You have been a great help.:)

    I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it. So far, there have been NO redirects. I will let you know if I get one.
