Browser redirect virus

more options

Whenever I try opening up firefox to use, I am instead faced with a Bing home page. I have tried uninstalling and installing again but it hasn't seemed to have worked. I am presented with a "Network Protocol Error" saying it can't connect to "segoonow.com" which is malware, and seems to be redirecting me to use bing instead of firefox.

How can I fix this? It's troubling and I don't want it stealing my information and continuing to redirect me to a web browser I don't want to use.

Thank you.

Try to enter about:third-party in the URL bar and see if there's anything suspicious.

I did end up finding some odd links after doing that and decided to give Firefox a refresh, It seems that cleared things up and Firefox is back to working properly.

Thanks so much!
