    I updated the first link to AdwCleaner to match r73123 of the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article, as it is a dead link. Side note: is there any reason to prefer 2 mirrors over the original website’s link?

    When I do a search on ADWcleaner the first hit is https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/ (the Free Download link on that page goes to https://toolslib.net/downloads/finish/1/ )

    I also did a search on Malwarebytes ADWcleaner and found https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner_welcome/ so it looks like Malwarebytes took over ADWcleaner and we should link to https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

    I made a new revision to update the ADWcleaner link.
