every search in Firefox is blocked by WebRoot for malicious site https://services.srchweb.org
Today, 9/9/18, using the search box in Google (searching everything) on Firefox triggers a warning for malicious site from Webroot.
Webroot has blocked the website you are trying to access for your protection:(https://services.srchweb.org/crx/search.php?k=croc&action=ds&...) I searched crocs and this is what happened. Detected Spyware/Adware Site This site might contain software that gathers information and tracks activity without the user’s knowledge or explicit consent, or that shows unsolicited popup advertising.
Anything at all that I type into the search box triggers this response - if I use any other browsers I have no problem whatsoever. Just with V62.0 Firefox

You can look for a file named dsengine.js in these locations. You should only find channel-prefs.js in the "defaults\pref" location. Any file found here apart from channel-prefs.js is suspicious. You can check the content of the file in a text editor (use open with and do not double-click the file).
- C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\
You can look for a file named dsengine.cfg in the main Firefox program folder.
- C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\
Delete the dsengine.js and dsengine.cfg files when present.
Note there has been some changes of the file names and locations.
