How can I delete: http://static.flipora.com/websearch.html?u=13739615&t=2.0&ref_type=autoopen&src_type=tg

I cannot find it in the control panel. When I start FF it defaults to this search page. I tried re-choosing my Home Page in Options but it keeps going back to flipora.

THANK YOU!!

this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your pc. please 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) and do a full scan of your system with the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware

in case this doesn't solve the issue please try this: go to firefox > help > troubleshooting information > profile folder - "show folder", then a new window will open up. in this window look out for a file named user.js (it might be used to overwrite your custom settings). in case it is present , delete or rename this file and restart firefox afterwards.
