"The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded."

For some odd reason my Firefox has started showing the above on my homepage and on other loaded pages in firefox.

I use AVG for protection and it doesnt show any Issues during its scans.

Is there a way I can get rid of this "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded." alert box?

The only thing that I think has some connection is a Search engine called blekko that appeared on my PC. I never knowingly downloaded this search engine but its appeared anyway.

Can anyone help me out please.

Thanks Johnny, I'll give it a good Sweep.

I cured it...I found a cure here

Url is not Valid fix

It was in my case a Spam free browser addon that came in with a Blekko search engine, it must have piggy backed in from a dodgy download.

anyway..its gone now...I removed it,..phewwwwwwwwww!!
