Browser redirected to

Twice within a week, my browser (Firefox) has been redirected to a presumably malicious site while I was browsing presumably safe sites.  Maximum Security correctly blocked access to the orgeles-hantests site and saved the day.  However, I'd like to fix whatever caused this.  I forced a scan of my computer and Maximum Security found no problems.  Is this likely to be a problem in my computer?  How do I get rid of it?

Thank you. 

My browser redirected (and Trend blocked it) again today, so this has happened three times in about 10 days.

I do not see the added string as described in the link you provided.  
The target string is: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
So it appears that the redirection is caused by something else.

This may have started when I browsed  
This site is not likely intentionally malicious, but I notice that comcast treats email containing its url as spam.  My redirection problem first cropped up while looking at Pella windows at that site.

I performed a 'refresh' of Firefox just now as was recommended elsewhere.
I then downloaded and ran Malwarebytes.  It found nothing.

I'll see if the problem repeats.
