hello gj6031, please try to install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customziations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

also go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page
