hello, 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). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and run a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and different other tools like 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

afterwards install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customizations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

If you got Firefox from any site other than a Mozilla site, it could well have had junk added to it. Get it from the source.

Folks: I was prompted to upgrade my Firefox version tonight and after I did so, it seems to have also included and installed a MixiDJ bar and search and home page. I thought this issue was resolved awhile ago, what gives? I uninstalled everything and then re-downloaded straight from firefox.com and guess what, it's giving me the same thing again, MixiDJ. I don't want this crap, what gives? I'm going to be doing a complete format of my computer because I don't trust what MixiDJ or whoever the scumbags are that created it have done. HELP!

Mozilla does not put junk like that into Firefox. If you installed other Windows software and did not watch very closely what it was doing during the installation, you could very well have had junk added to your browsers.
