What is "search.arcahol.com" which appears every time I open the browser?
When opening Firefox, I've noticed "search.arcahol.com" on the http:// browser line. What is this? Is this part of a Firefox browser? It's not addressed anywhere that I've looked. If it doesn't belong, how do I get rid of it?
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.14; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0
Hi wings2123, Search.arcahol.com is a shady search engine that can be obtained through adware or malware infection.
I suggest that you run a malware scan.
Thank you! Took your advise and my Firefox browser is doing fine.
Great! Glad to hear it. Malwarebytes Browser Guard extension should be available, soon. Highly recommended. Keep an eye out for it.
