Is something resting on your keyboard or is a key stuck down?

I don't know what you used for the scan but Spybot finds things some standard virus checkers will ignore.

Also you can start Firefox in safe mode which is for troubleshooting. It disables extensions and uses the default theme and toolbar settings
You should see a Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" shortcut in the start menu.

Some links that might help

Start in safe mode
