I have used adfly for a long time, with a website I designed, but recently when I try to go to the main page adf.ly it redirects to "http://adf.ly/pcQDu" (adfly interstitial advertisement).

I have searched through about:config, I've run a malwarebytes full "threat" scan, found a few "non malicious" things and removed them successfully, but this redirect issue is still ongoing.
Some assistance removing this hijack would be appreciated.

Please see the malwarebytes scan log below:
