Daily File Converter just showed up in Firefox. Cannot find a way to eliminate it. It wants to be the browser default page even though I've chosen a different one. I think this installation happened with a firefox update. Anyone else have this issue and how do you get rid of it? Thanks

Hello spalmer,

Would you please go to Options => Add-ons => Extensions and look for anything that you didn't in stall yourself. If you find anything : remove it. Then do the same in Windows Control Panel.

Then take a look at these articles - one is about "Daily File Converter" and the other one about "Daily File Converter New Tab". They may both be referring to the same thing, though.

It might also be a good idea to run all malware scans that are listed here :

Thanks McCoy

It looks like the first couple of steps took care of this problem. This is a new laptop and I've only installed a few apps so I'm not sure how this popped up especially since nothing was installed in at least 5 days before this occurred. I think there was a firefox update and I'd hate to think it came inside of that.

Thanks for the help Susan

I'm glad you got rid of the nuisance - they do slip in when you least expect it.

Have a nice day, Susan  !
