Hi, I keep deleting my search engine list in settings as I just want one, 'DuckDuckGo' to be used. But after a day or two Firefox keep adding others to my list and all of a sudden I'm using Yahoo again. This is SO frustrating. Why won't it just stay as I need it to be?

Bing is popping up on my home screen whenever I want to search. And then it stays there. Bing also steals my search when I use Goggle. The only search engine showing under Customize is Google. It's google I want. I have followed Bing's instructions for removal as well as a couple I have found here by poring through Options, Customize, Extensions and Add-ons, and Help, as part of several found instructions. I am running Firefox Quantum Mozilla under Windows 10 with Google as my search.

And I cannot find nor get rid of Bing.

I have been running Firefox on my PC with no issues since Mar 2018. Then last week i started to get this line of info at the top of the screen when when I started Firefox -

search.hquickmapsanddirections.com/?uc=201... etc. [ See attached file ]

Since i was unable to get back to the Firefox window i was used to for almost a year, I decided to UNINSTALL Firefox. i then downloaded Firefox installer but could not install it again, getting an Installer window that reads, "Sorry, Firefox can't be installed. This version of Firefox requires MS Windows 7 or newer. I'm running MS W7.

Thank you,

I noticed some gradual changes to the operation of my Dell Latitude/D630 running Win 10 (which I downloaded from a site in the U.K. about 9 mo. ago).

I am stuck with Bing as a search engine.

My computer seems to react to commands slowly. I tried downloading FireFox at least 6X , the error message I keep getting is; Profile missing You Firefox profile cannot be loaded , it may be missing or inaccessible .

Hello, Ive got Quantum 63.01 running on macbook pro. Yahoo barging in as the 'default search engine'. I go to my preference page I delete it, google is back to being my default search engine. A few days later, boom- there is yahoo again showing up as the default. This goes on several times a week, and its driving me nuts. If I didnt like yahoo before, I really hate them now. Ive gone through all of your solutions, there is nothing in my extensions or add-ons that shouldnt be there. So why does this continue to happen? I need to get rid of yahoo now. I even ran yahoo through the finder and there is nothing on my laptop for yahoo. Isnt there a script I can look for in firefox that can be deleted or something?? Any and all help is truly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

using mac 10.10. I want to support Mozilla rather than Apple products. trying again and again to devirus, uninstall, reinstall but Firefox keeps launching with a search page called Wow. (It has a peach-like logo). searches say it's a browser hijack, like Yahoo and Anysearch, that appear in browsers to misguide searches.

What is up? Thanks. Do I have to run antivirus after each attempt to use Firefox? Or is this Firefox's own browser? If I have been battling a benign thing don't flame me.

Hi there, While working on a sound effects site, I somehow downloaded malware to my Mac. Now, every time I do a google search (in the address bar, and also in the google search bar, which I've since just removed), the google search results no longer come up. Instead, I'm redirected to a search engine called: http://search.primeinfospot.com/?tp1=dbc19016-3c27-4231-bf81-d50a9c367fda&kw=sarch

Going through my search history when this happened, it seems it came out of this "Browser Update" (here's the start of the site, removing all the gobbly gook that followed it but maybe but don't click on it to be safe?)

https://www.logicalplatforms.com/

I've tried simply adjusting my firefox settings. restoring default but firefox seems to think this is my default. any ideas on how to remove this and insure it's not doing other bad things to my comptuer? thanks!

Hello, my firefox default search engine and homepage keep resetting to Bing. I have followed a couple of guides already which did not work, I have already tried:

-Removing any and all extensions/add-ons from the firefox browser -Checking in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\ for anything unusual; only channel-prefs.js is there which I think is as it should be.

It is resetting every time I turn the computer on - how can I fix this?

Thank you.

McAfee warning panel pops up and advises that the <hmyquickconverter.com> URL is dangerous, but I have never allowed this URL to be active when queried while opening Firefox. The McAfee software is responding inappropriately and is getting in my way. Their "Accept Risk" button does not respond, so this workaround is unavailable.

I have for many years used Firefox with Google as the search engine.

Today out of the blue Bing appeared as the search engine - without me manually changing anything.

I want to use Google as my preferred search engine

It seems that Bing has invaded as a malware would perhaps on the back of some other invasive add on or similar.

I have gone to options and settings and after removing Bing (supposedly) it reappears when I do a search.

Very frustrating for an occasional user.
