The search then either times out or it blocks access to the person/company I want to visit

Hi, clicksearch dartsearch is an adware that got into your pc. There's a couple things you should try;

First is try using adblocker like Uorigin. This doesn't remove the virus from your laptop though, it would only help firefox block the adware pop-ups and such.

Second, you should remove the virus. Well I'm not an expert and I would be bad at explaining but here's a site that thoroughly describes and shows how to remove it: https://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-clickserve-dartsearch-net/

Goodluck!
