Question owner

The answer was UNISTALL FUNMOODS as you might think. I know better than install that crap. That doesn't absolve them.

Can anyone offer help to a Mac user? I have removed the add-on and toolbar and reset my home page but a new tab still opens in funmoods. Can someone give me Mac specific instructions????

Well, well ! I just saw a "remove" link on the new tab that opened with funmoods instead of my default. A second new tab opened with an entirely blank page - not my home page, as I would prefer, but at least not funmoods! Will see if it holds.

The advice for removing funmoods did not help me for the following reasons:

(1) using about:config, finding keyword.url, right-clicking finds that reset is grayed out. (2) finding browser.newtab.url, reset is also grayed out.

I'm using Firefox 13.0.1 on a PC with Windows 7 64-bits.

I have also used Malwarebytes -- it found 9 (?) entries for funmoods and deleted them.

I have used Wise Registry Cleaner to clean the registry as well. Still, funmoods opens in each new tab.

Try to reset the funmoods prefs on the about:config page.

  • Open the about:config page via the location bar and do a search for funmoods via the Search bar at the top of the about:config page.
  • Reset all funmoods related prefs that appear bold (user set) via the right-click context menu to their default values.

If you do not keep changes after a restart then see:

I was able to remove Funmoods using "remove" on the Funmoods search page. It worked and no more Funmoods

This is the answer that worked for me. However, the steps weren't exactly the same. To the: In Firefox- Go to Tools and then addons [change here to say "select Extensions on the left side"; you should see Funmoods near or at the top], click Options [I just clicked on Remove and restarted Firefox - worked perfectly], then select Advanced and uncheck the first option "Use funmoods as enhanced search for new tab". Thanks.
