Search hijack by conduit (/questions/968030/)
A new version of Conduit has hijacked my FireFox browser, among other things. Every time I open a new tab it comes up in the conduit search engine rather than my default of Google. Any mistyping of a url sends me to bing via conduit. I used to be able to get into about:config and fix such problems, but now any attempt to do that simply sends me to bing. This is a horrible mess, and keeps happening, and FF users need a way to block these conduit takeovers.

hello, please try these steps:
- reset firefox (this will keep your bookmarks and passwords)
- afterwards go to firefox > addons > extensions and in case there are still extensions listed there, disable them.
- finally run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner to make sure that adware isn't present in other places of your system as well.
