In Firefox I discovered that under Preferences/Search/SearchItDown can't be removed. I was able to remove it in Safari. SearchItDown is preventing my MAC from shutting down using Apple / Shutdown. I have to now use the button. Also some programs that are open can't be closed unless I use fore quit. I'm on a MACbook Pro using Sierra 10.12.3
