How do I get rid of swagbucks search from coming up when I search from my address bar?

Posted

I have deleted swagbucks from control panel and add ons. But when I try to do a search from my address bar the stupid swag search results comes up. I have e-mailed them more times that I can count and they wont help. It is driving me crazy. I even went so far as to to completely delete my account at swagbucks.

hello Kygirl, please install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customziations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default (including the keyword search from the location bar): https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
