You have ad-ware. Open your computer Programs Folder, and remove Google anything. If you have Google Maps, that should be okay.

Using your file browser, open the Programs folder on your computer.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.


Then open Firefox Add-ons Manager and do the same thing.

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac:<Command>)<Shift> A)
