When I try to use search terms in Firefox it redirects me to an insecure website URL with an error message. I do not have any plugins installed, but there is this robot symbol next to my search bar.

Are you sure you don't have any add-ons installed? This is not a native Firefox icon, try to reinstall the browser and let us know if it helps.

Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? What is/are the exact error message(s) ?


Can you provide an example of what you searched for, and where you ended up?

When I search up a term (such as "water") Firefox sends me to this URL https://24infonews.live/trk/tlp.php?channel=1400&q=water. However, Firefox flags this website as insecure. Upon clicking "accept risk and continue", the website is just a 404 error. Also this only happens when I use google. If I were to use a search engine such as Bing or DuckDuckGo the search bar works perfectly fine. However I want to continue to use google as my search engine.
