Hi, look in the Add-ons Manager (Ctrl+Shift+A) > Extensions/Plugins. Also look in your PC's programs.

If that doesn't help, you can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Note that not all removal programs will detect all malware, so you may need to run several or all of them.

After removal you may need to reset your home page and search, which you can do by running the add-on SearchReset.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us. Thank you!
