Not sure how Headline Alley downloaded onto my Mac? It has taken over my Firefox browser. I've searched on line, and it is referred to as Malware. Is it really? I don't what any of my information accessed. Please let me what I should do. Thank you

Hi  !

Good for you to be on the alert  ! Go to the 3-bar menu (or   'Tools') => Addons => Extensions and look for any unfamiliar or suspicious looking extensions

And I see in your system details that the culprit installed itself there  ! So, please remove it.

And to make sure that it didn't install any 'hidden' malware somewhere else on your system, let's run (some more) malware scans :

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners.
They all work differently   -   what one program doesn't pick up, the other might.
