Yesterday, for no apparent reason, my Firefox access suddenly

Resolved Question:

Yesterday, for no apparent reason, my Firefox access suddenly jumped to a blank screen with a small blue box "Listen to Music" - and nothing else. I cannot access anything on the net using Firefox now. I have today uninstalled Firefox and downloaded from your website - to have the same problem! All I can do is exit it and use Internet Explorer instead. But I prefer to use Firefox.

What is going on, please?
