why "Tuvaro" is highjacking my computor and home page after down loading and installing firefox ?
when ever I down load and install fire fox the home page is automatically changed in to "Tuvaro" and changes all settings. I tried several times, and the same repeated. so I totally uninstalled from my system and like to reinstall without Tuvaro. is it possible ? I am using acer i5 with window7. 64 bit.

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your pc. make sure that you always download firefox from its official location at getfirefox.com.
afterwards 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.
Dear Mr. Philipp, thank you very much for your help and support. I could solve the problem much easier than I thought and regain the fire fox without "Tuvaro". thanking you once again, with regards.
