How do I get rid of the Babylon search bar?

I have no idea how Babylon invaded my Mozilla, but I've tried every hint listed to rid it - all of no avail. I deleted Mozilla entirely and reloaded. When it first appeared, the Babylon monster was gone, but it reappeared when I reopened Mozilla after closing. Please help - I miss my Mozilla, but I can't tolerate the Babylon nonsense.

Same here. First thing I did was follow the instructions in [[How to remove the Babylon toolbar, home page and search engine|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-babylon-toolbar-home-page-and-search-engine]]. The toolbar is gone, but the home page keeps reverting to Babylon search.

I've tried so many other things found in this forum and other fora and sites that I can't even tell you off the top of my head what I've done.  (But if I see it, as in Babylon.LTD's reply, I will recognize it.)  

It looks like it's been eradicated from Explorer and Chrome as of now. (Fingers and toes crossed.) But every time I think it's gone from Firefox it pops back up on the next startup. With all the complaints in all the forums here you'd think Mozilla would do more to address this problem.
