I have set the home-page for Mozilla Firefox as www.google.co.in , but for some reason the actual page displayed on Firefox opening up is www.onewebsearch.com

So I reset the home page by typing in the website address. Same result So I reset the home page by going to google, and selecting the option "use current page as home page" No improvement

Something is wrong, and I cant figure out what is wrong ? If something like this happens in a Microsoft browser, for example, I would say "Aha ! They must be trying to force the traffic to go to a fixed website" . But surely that is not how Mozilla Firefox would work. Right ?

This is a browser hijacker. They come in various ways, and it can be browser related, network related, trojans, etc. First thing you should do is Reset Firefox preferences to troubleshoot and fix problems Reset Firefox. You can try uninstall all add-ons manually as well. If this fixes your problem, for other browsers removal instructions are here. Then, if the problems continue, scan with anti-malware programs. I recommend Hitman Pro in such cases and adwcleaner. If they detect nothing, it might be DNS or ISP trick, you should go through this list for troubleshooting.

Hi,

Did you try uninstalling Onewebsearch from Control Panel Add and Remove Programs list? If you see anything related to this name, you should remove it. It is also recommended to uninstall any other unfamiliar applications that were added on the same day. The next thing to do is to check your Internet browser extensions. Remove any unfamiliar ones. If the problem still exists read this onewebsearch removal guide.
