The promo for it appeared on a major website and I foolishly clicked out of curiosity. Now it has reconfigured my new tab page in Firefox and apparently ditched my preferred search engine (DuckDuckGo). I've search how to uninstall it but have found nothing that fits the situation. Can anyone help?

Recently I clicked on an ad from watchTVnow(dot)com and it loaded malware on my laptop that reconfigured my "New Tab" page. The community helped me get rid of it (thank you very much), and I am scanning daily for malware, but now I keep getting cleverly disguised come-on ads that are from the same group. Their ID is in tiny print at the bottom of the ad, so tiny that anyone who hadn't been through my experience might not notice.

This is annoying for me, but I know better. My question is why these people still have access to Firefox and what can be done to ban them. The response I got from the forum before made it clear that this is a well-known source of malware. What can be done?
