running windows 10 home, browser firefox, search engine duck duck go, this morning I opened google maps to check on directions for a trip I am taking and the site was :click here, (notice the jp before .maps) which give me click here, currently doing a full scan of laptop, at the moment nothing found, has anybody else come across this?

Maybe give adw cleaner a run to see if it finds any problems.

Works fine for me.

sounds like you have a nasty redirect use something like ADWcleaner to scan for browser addons and pups.

No problems from my end. Have you run an anti-virus test?

Try refreshing Firefox click here , will get rid of all extensions and themes. Reinstate your extensions one at a time in case it's an extension problem.
