Is Conduit.com one of your products?

I have a toolbar by conduit.com. I cannot find out where it came from. If it doesn't belong to Mozilla Firefox I would like to get rid of it.

Re: Is Conduit.com one of your products?

hello, conduit is a known adware creator and no part of mozilla. 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). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.

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 most common customizations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
