After Firefox update, pages are redirected whenever I type a letter or try to enter url, different redirects based on letter I type. Opens a windows explorer window, goes to original login, opens Start/Run window with cmd in box etc.

Please send some advice if you have any ideas of how to solve this issue.
The info that is shown about my computer is not accurate. The machine with the problems below is running 64 bit Vista but I cannot access a site like this one due to the constraints listed below.
I fell for what I thought was a Firefox update but since installing it, when entering a URL, I am redirected back to original computer log in / password entry box. If I use my browser window drop down list I can get into something like Facebook and move around but as soon as I try to type any letter into a 'comment' box, I am redirected to both a Windows Explorer type page showing my various drives and another Window from my Start/Run with the dialog box open with cmd entered in it already. Certain typed letters don't show up at all when trying to enter a 'comment' on Facebook while various letters get various different responses. It is impossible to enter any URL or use my browser other than the items in my drop down. Once there, say to my bank account, I cannot enter any password as I am immediately redirected to someplace else upon trying to type a letter or character. I don't know how to get my browser working. I have tried IE as well and the same thing happens. All started after the supposed upgrade of Firefox. Your help would be appreciated. Thank you.
