How can I remove an address locked into my address line that will not go away?

Posted

The following address is in the address line and I cannot get rid of it: http://search.mykotlerino.com/results.html?c=1&v=insMac&t=1506&ap=1431332764335608&r=2cac5f0332cc526ba64611fb7d9514c6&q=firefox+help It always comes back. There is also a 503 error and it says the server is not available.

Bookmark and use this; Mozilla Search Reset {web link} This add-on is very simple: on installation, it backs up and then resets your search preferences and home page to their default values, and then uninstalls itself. This affects the search bar, URL bar searches, and the home page.
