How to get rid of the new tab Delta Search?

I installed a program and it would only install with Delta Search. I reset my homepage to Google but whenever I open a new tab it takes me to the search for Delta, help?

Re: How to get rid of the new tab Delta Search?

I have a solution after finding zero help online, i decided to do it myself and found it was profoundly easy.

type in "about:config" in the url

accept "ill be careful i promise"

type in "new tab browser"

find the delta search bogus garbage and double click the url link.

replace it with what ever you like, google, yahoo, about:blank, after that everything should be the way it was.

your welcome

Re: How to get rid of the new tab Delta Search?

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.

about.config no longer works on my Firefox. I still cannot get rid of the damned Delta search. Why are such useless companies allowed to subjugate people so?

I am so angry for downloading this crap that included all this delta rubbish and now the delta search engine is coming up. Even though i have deleted it from everywhere!!! arrrgh. All this started coz i couldn't open a photo- so i went searching on how to update windows photo viewer! I downloaded some 77zip thing and then discovered all this delta crap came with it.!! what the hell. I think i will stay away from downloading anything!! At one stage i was tricked into thinking i was downloading a photo updater and it was actually some stupid Zinky app. Wasted hours. And still am.

I got so sick of this Delta rubbish and not being able to delete it. It wasn't even in the list of programs in Control panel. Finally I did a search of my computer for Delta and found a folder on my hard drive with that name. I deleted the folder completely and so far, no more Delta. Hope it stays that way.
