You can check the target line in the Firefox desktop shortcut (right-click: Properties) to make sure that nothing is appended after the path to the Firefox program.

The home page is actually called omniboxes.com. However, it is not enough just to remove this from the home page of your browser. The computer is deeply infected, I assume you also have SupHPNot.exe as an active process. This needs to be dealt with. You may scan your PC with some genuine and free antivirus like Malwarebytes. I would also recommend you to reset your browser as explained in this guide - https://www.system-tips.net/delete-omniboxes-trojan/
