My tabs are being hijacked. Under page info shows: chrome://msdsd/content/newtab/newtab.html

Hello,

          I searched online to try and find out what above hijack item is & how it can take over on any

page I tab. (I fixed my home page, and removed a toolbar line it also created).

I went into all the Firefox options, and check control panel add/remove programs to veryify there was no entry relating to Google, or Chrome or MSDSD.

Searched the web, There is no www.msdsd.com website, either. I have no idea where the hooks for this item are on my machine. If it is a program, I would delete it. If it is a setting I would change it.

Even attempted to block chrome:// on my firewall. Wish I could tell you how this got on my machine in the first place... Not having any luck getting a handle on this. Any ideas as to how to kill this items or where it originated from?

hello madav, you have two extensions present, that possibly cause this behaviour: MySearchDial NewTab 9.5.3 & mysearchdial.com 1.6.0

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page

I have the same problem but the solution does not work in my pc: I have started Firefox in safe mode, meaning no extension activated, and the f... problems is still there

Hi unparadomas

Could you please start a new thread for your question instead of posting in an existing thread?

Then you can provide more information like your operating system and installed extensions and installed plugins.

I tried following the other posts here, maybe I’m just dense! Here is the step by step way I got rid of the chrome hijack!

Go to: Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions

Disable “MySearchDial” and test that that cleared up your problem.

IF not for some reason, re-enable it, but I don’t think this will be the case.

If it does clean up the problem, remove the unwanted extension.
