Usually if i forgo the search bar and type in a word like dog, i'll be taken to either dog.com or the google results for dog. Some add on is interfering with this redirecting queries to somoto.com. I disabled addons and the issue is still persistent. Any fixes? Art

Chosen solution

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.
