How do I get rid of findwide.com? I have deleted from control panel. I have reset firefox to default settings, and I have unintalled and reinstalled firefox.
Using windows 8.1. Have deleted findwide.com., reset to default settings, and uninstalled and re installed firefox. Still there.

When do you get the findwide.com website?
Is that with the home page or the about:newtab page or otherwise?
You can a search for findwide.com pref(s) on the about:config page via the search bar at the top of this page.
If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:
Make sure there are no settings in about:config that references findwide. Also, right-click on FF link on desktop/menu and make sure there is no mention of it there. A scan with adwcleaner or other anti-malware might help to remove it.
