Unwanted Tab "Launchpage.org" opening everytime I open firefox
Hello firefox users. an Unwanted Tab "Launchpage.org" is opening everytime I open firefox. im pretty sure this is malware but can'r remove it/find anything related to it in control panel/browser settings, tried to trouble shoot through google but no help. it opens up even if ive saved google as my homepage.
