I found this in my addons/extensions

Premium Enhanser http://premium-search.com

It was taking me to bling not to Google as I wanted.I have no idea how it got there. I disabled it and that fixed the hijacking from Google maps. It also fixed the problem of Google maps not searching for the address I put in.

When I first turn on my computer and open Firefox I get two pop-up windows that open with Firefox. One is a malware type window that says something to the effect of "fix your mac of errors". I can't remember what the second window says. Either way it is super annoying and I want it to stop! I have ran Malwarebytes scans, and have ran my Sophos antivirus scans as well and nothing has come up. My browser does not seem to have been hijacked as my homepage and everything else is in tact. I know how to uninstall Firefox, but I am not sure where to find the Firefox folder that needs to be deleted to make Firefox a completely new install. If someone could instruct me on how to do that I would appreciate that!

Bookmarks toolbar disappearing - cause & fix

I recently experienced this issue, and found no solution on googling it. I noticed too that others had the same issue. Having just experienced and fixed it again, here are my observations;

Cause: I have my Firefox set to remember last session. Occasionally, I X out of my main window not realising that there was an ad popup underneath (even though I use adblock). These ads, for whatever reason, have the ability to hide the bookmarks toolbar in their window. That means when you close and reopen, even if you went to a normal site, the bookmarks stay off. It will persist through reinstalls and all kinds of workarounds in my experience.

Fix: Refresh Firefox. Click the Three lines, Help, then Troubleshooting Information. Here you can manually refresh firefox, and it will open with your bookmarks showing again (and a few minor cosmetic things go to default, so you may have to re-tick menu bar and customise how you like your main buttons to look etc). I didn't try this with anything other than having one tab open on google the last time it happened to me.

Not a question, but hopefully useful for anyone who has experienced this, wasn't sure where else to put it.

Unlike with Internet Explorer, evey web page that opens has links to what I call 'trash' sites which automatically opens instead of the page you are requesting; you have to delete the page before you work the page you requested. If your lucky that is and you do not accidently hit a hyperlink that takes you somewhere else.

After every update I have to re setup my setting/homepage/how it works & Visual shopper popups I can not remove = me done with Firefox. Most time my add ons do not work with new version. All this + the large memory allocation Firefox needs does not make it worth my time. I was going to use Firefox on my phone & laptop OS, not now!
