how do I remove ask.com

Postáilte

I have ask.com as a search engine. I tried deleting by uninstalling it but it is still there although uninstalled. I have uninstalled Firefox butt it comes back when I reload it. I am asking this question as a last resort as if I can't get rid of it I will start using Safari for my internet

Additionally, the Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

This reply from a representative of Ask.com requires that I click on a link with suffix .ly.

What country is that?

Why am I going to click on a link like that from a corporation that installs itself into my browser without explicit intent?

Does anyone expect me to run a "removal utility" (and restart my pc) from a vendor that plants a search engine into my browser without any removal option at all but its' own removal utility that I find after putting much efforts to find? Has anyone found more reliable solution?
