My computer has been invaded by something called findr and it keeps taking over firefox. I've uninstalled and reinstall firefox.

Findr, whatever that is, keeps changing my default homepage to findr. It defaults my search engine to findr. I change it back to what it was and within a day or two it goes back.

The findr page says it is not encrypted and therefore my internet usage is open to anyone.

I've uninstalled firefox and reinstalled and it reverted back to findr the next day.

If you do not keep changes after a restart then see:

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
