Re: Conduit search has hijacked my firefox browser how do I remove it

  • Open your Firefox browser and type “about:config” in address bar
  • Now you can see a list of items “Preference Name” and its values. Now type "search” in the filter box on top of that window...
  • Check all strings contents as "CONDUIT" - and rightclick-reset..

Thats all done.. I done the same..

Re: Conduit search has hijacked my firefox browser how do I remove it

Several tried to but no one seemed to understand the real problem. I COULD, because it was mine too. So it follows the only ultimate solution: 1. Open Firefox 2. On the address bar, type – about:config in the URL. Press Enter. 3. You will be warned about Warranty. Click on “I’ll be careful…” 4. On the Filter dialog box type – search.conduit 5. It will display all related entries. Right-click on Preferences Name and Reset.

It worked for me, after trying a dozen of "fake" solutions. Smiley Wink

I used the Uninstall in Windows! After that, I did a search for conduit and I deleted everything I found! Rebooted After reboot I clicked into the FireFox window just below the blue bar at the top and I clicked on the Menubar. Then I used Tools...Options and General tab and I inserted the home page of my choice...now everything is OK! I hope this helps those that need it!!!

I had this thing take over as well on my machine. Very annoying! It did not show up in "Uninstall Programs" and when I tried to use "Tools" in Mozilla, it removed the toolbar and I couldn't get it back. Maniekanda's recommendation was spot on and successful. I have my browser back now just the way I want it.

Hi. You should go to the

{Home drive like 'C:'}\{Users folder like 'Users'}\{Username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{Your Random ID Folder}\

Open prefs.js, user.js files and look for homepage variable through these two files and u can see what is the value of them. Change 'em as everything u want.
