In the following post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1178871) it lists how to get rid of the Bink "hijacking" in Firefox. However, I don't have the SearchAssist Incognito extension installed. Additionally, I have removed Bing completely from the search options in the default as well as one click search engines under Firefox options. However, I Bing is STILL hijacking my search's. If I open a new window, it's Bing search, if I search in the address bar, it's Bing search. Nothing I do gets rid of Bing. Help? Thanks in advance!

The full text of the pop-up is "Some links being hijacked, pop up "Congratulations device user! You are selected by our sponsor to be among the first few persons to win a Galaxy S10 or other"

The URL starts http://sweeps7668.bunnyvhyk7.live/4368084763/ and takes me to some false Survey about Google. This has happened a couple of times now with different websites. The link I clicked thsi time ( from DuckDuckGo search ) is https://www.topgadgetreviews.co.uk/finish-line-ceramic-wet-lubricant-120ml-bottle-review/ and after about 5 to 10 minutes when I click the link it is OK.

The full hijack link is as follows:

Hello, yesterday I tried to install an update on my computer that caused the computer to shut down. When the computer restarted my settings in firefox had changed (although I don't think Firefox updated or anything). My search engine options are now just Bing, Amazon, and Ebay. I know how to add more search engines. I went to the preferences page->search-> find more search engines. But when the list of available search engines comes up, google is missing. There's search google images, google translate, every other country's google you can imagine, but default US Google is not there. Where did it go? Why can't I find it?

I recently made Firefox my default browser and in the search bar or the address bar, matters not, any topic typed in renders a result of "error. " To locate anything, I have to resort to either Safari or Google within their browsers. I like the Firefox browser but with this kind of glitch I may have made a mistake in using FFF as my default browser. Any help would be appreciated. thank you.

I was tricked into downloading a fake flashplayer update that included the adware "pro search tip." I've been able to uninstall it from my other browsers and firefox and it doesn't appear anywhere on my machine. I also used sophos to scan my machine, which deleted it. But it still redirects my default search engine to itself in firefox.

I have https everywhere activated, and ad blocker as well.

I am using Firefox Quantum and when I type something in the address bar Yahoo searches pop up. There are obviously many other people with the same problem as I have seen this same issue brought up multiple times when I have researched this problem. I have looked at the answers provided in the various forums etc. and none have provided an answer that works for me. I have done the "about:config", "about:preferences#search", gone in and deleted or inactivated all add ons, etc. and either the expected response such as looking for the "keyword.url" is not there or does not work. If this can't be fixed I am going to stop using Firefox all together as this Yahoo search thing is SO annoying. I would think that with this being a common problem the help sites for Mozilla/Firefox would have the answer readily available. Furthermore, just my two cents worth, but I think it stinks that either Yahoo or some other associated program hijacks the address bar and changes the search from Google, which is what I had set up, to Yahoo without a warning or even without asking if I would like this. The results that Yahoo search produces are very inadequate.

I can go to https://account.microsoft.com and log in successfully and visit other Microsoft sites like outlook.com. However, when I go to bing.com it shows "Sign in" and when clicked I am briefly taken to login.live.com and then back to bing.com without actually being logged in. I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled, content blocking setting is at Standard. I have cleared cookies/web data and tried adding both URLs to Exceptions Cookies and Site Data. However, nothing seems to work.

The search function in the browser redirects to https://www.gogote.com (instead of www.google.com), which uses the Google logo but delivers different results. Is this function hijacked by malware or did I miss something? I installed firefox 1 week ago. I found 2 add-ons, which I deactivated. How can I get rid of it?

Several times over the past 3 weeks, Firefox has reset to default between uses. There were no updates installed, and I made no changes to the settings after changing them from the default. Specifically, Firefox reset my homepage to Bing, and reset my default search tool to Bing.

I want these resets to stop, and for my saved settings to remain. How can I accomplish this without either Mozilla support or Firefox changing it without my knowledge.
