How do I remove isearch.fantastigames.com from firefox

When I add a tab, the url http://isearch.fantastigames.com comes up by default. How do I stop that from happening. I used to get a window that opened to about 6 of my favorite sites.

Re: How do I remove isearch.fantastigames.com from firefox

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Re: How do I remove isearch.fantastigames.com from firefox

hello, this is possibly caused by adware on your pc. if you don't want to generally reset firefox please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc) instead. also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and do a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and different other tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware

afterwards install the search reset addon - it will revert the new tab page in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
