I had this problem with Safari & Chrome but I was able to fix it. I cannot get rid of "search manager." I have looked into all the items listed that I can find but every time I sign onto Firefox, I'm directed to search manager. I just open a new tab. It is NOT listed as one of the search engines. How can I get rid of it? My home page is a blank page.

https://www.bing.com/search?q=marquis+search+engine "Search Marquis is a browser hijacker developed by Mindspark Interactive. If you have that hoax search engine, it is likely that there is an unwanted program on your computer system that is pushing this hijacker."

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

I was able to get rid of the annoying search engine. I ran Malwarebytes and ComboCleaner. According to only Combo Cleaner, I have 3 Mac viruses. Not sure if I want to pay CC to remove.
