How to remove hohosearch from Firefox for good?

Hy everyone, 2 days ago i installed a bad program which destroyed my entire system. At first Bitdefender warned me that is a dangerous file. But i needed the program so much , the comments arownd were so promicing .. and so - i turned off the Bitdefender antivirus.

During the installation, i saw that it tries to install a lot of stuff - unrelated to what i wanted - like browser addons, video converters, pc optimizers, bitcoin miners etc - was a hole bundle of them maybe 8 or 10, many pages), i declined everything - and by the end - the decline button was disabled - basically it was forcing me to install some bullshit program. Because of that, I close down the installation. Nothing to worry right? I immediately checked the task manager - nothing strange.. just the usual programs running..

But surprise!! It got installed anyway - in the background somehow - after not more that 8-10 minutes. ( I received a windows notification). I do this all the time. But i felt this was different - I freaked out - i navigated to the Downloads folder, in order to scan the install. I figured that by doing this, the antivirus was able to detect the way virus worked - the pattern of action - and remove it even after it was installed . I've done this a couple of times before and it worked like a charm.

But another surprise - which is more curious - the virus Deleted his own install, form the Downloads folder!! Both of them, because i download'it twice. So i was not be able to track it down.

Using IOBIT software - I uninstalled all the 7 or so - recent programs that i recognize as not being mine. Deep detection registers all of that. Iobit has even a extra antivirus which wasn't able to detect anything more.

This takes like 10-13 minutes. At the 15 minute mark Bitdefender turned on the protection automatically as previously set.. He also detected some corrupt files, and after a deep scan and some fixes - i got the message - the system is clean.

Except was not - Chrome and Firefox had this hohosearch as first page. I bought SpyHunter, which after almost 3 hour deep scan, was able to find 4000 or so - corrupt entities including HoHoSearch and Yes-search, and some other names hard to memorize - which were specifically targeting the browsers and the internet experience. After clicking " Fix all the issues " - my System crashed. I wasn't able to open any browser, no system explore, no task manager. I cliched everything, but nothing happened. 4-5 restarts. Nothing. I figured that SpyHunter is very good at identifying and fixing - but is so much better at breaking. Even after i imported the previously saved registers and have done 2 system restores nothing worked. Something was badly corupted.

All the above happened on a windows 7 professional. I decided to install a fresh copy of Windows 10 and with that, I formatted the entire hardware. SO there is Nothing to tie back to the first system.

Now Chrome works as expected. The first time i opened Firefox - it works as expected. Next, I logged into my account, to get the bookmarks.

But after the system was synchronized: Surprise - the hohoSearch is back again!!

HoHoSearch it's not present in Adons, It's not present In Extensions. But now, I know for sure that is somehow saved in the Firefox profile on the cloud - and it got on my system again - after synchronization.

This time is not that bad - i mean is not spreadable - is just a small chunk of the bundle with which it came. The Crome browser still works fine. But please, can you show me how to rely get rid of it in Firefox??

It has a uninstall button on the bottom right as you can see in the image attached below.. But I don't trust that.

Just because it will not bother me with the hohosearch first page next time i open Firefox - it doesn't necessarily mean it's out.

Maybe is recording my entire search experience. No way to tell. Considering what hassle i gone trough on windows - 3 antivirus software finding different stuff each, and no one being able to nail the hole thing... It's reasonable to be skeptic at this point.

So this is why i asked this question here. The people who build this are rely smart and rely dangerous.

I don't trust their "too easy to find" uninstall button, and i need expert help to tell me what should i do. To asure that is rely out. I usualy help myself - but deleting my Firefox profile from the cloud - is not an option at this point.

I tried to give you as much info as i could. Thank you in taking the time to read and respond to my question.

I wasn't trying to download anything, simply browsing zillow for home sales and I got this 'firefox.patch' to download. Looked official, had your logo and everything, so I clicked it, and bam, my Windows Defender immediately popped up and said there was malware being downloaded and it would be removed. I went to my download folder looking for the 'firefox.patch' and found it. It still looked very official and everything. When I clicked on it, Windows Defender again popped up and deleted the entire file.

So my question is, do you have a patch for version 47.0 and is it in a 'patch' form or is this malware?

Intermittantly and increasingly Firefox cannot access my att.net e-mail. Initial site comes up just fine but it increasingly says 'cant find the server. I am not typing addresses in so that is NOT the problem. And it comes up fine on Edge or other browsers. This is a Firefox problem.

Unlike the other question on here, I do not lose any of the extensions or associated settings when this happens, the only thing affected is the appearance of the list itself. I have verified that this happens every time I boot Firefox after a PC restart. I followed the advice given on another questions to delete extensions.json and entensions.ini (the only ones present in my profile folder), unfortunately this only temporarily resolves the problem until it repeats. It started happening a few days after added Greasemonkey, I tried disabling it to see if that would fix it, but no luck! Thanks for reading.

Hello! I'm new on this forum; best greetings to all.

On my new laptop (upgraded to windows 10) embedded videos in my web site pages don't work as they do with windows 7. Examples: links "the tesseract", "the 120-cell"... at the end of the page

  http://maths.ac-noumea.nc/polyhedr/polytop_.htm

I use mediaplayer.swf which is in the same directory .../stuff/ Works fine in Firefox windows 7, but not with windows 10.

I made a test on an other computer running Windows 10 and it works fine. What could be the reason of my problem? a wrong setting in my Firefox? or in my Windows 10? I made twice a clean new install of Firefox, with a new profile (no extensions, all plug-ins but Java disabled); unfortunately no change: the video popup windows remain hopelessly black. Works fine in IE. In Edge of course no Java, but the videos play in new windows (no small popup windows). I would appreciate any suggestion.

How do I get rid of this nuisance? It will pop up intermittently and then I have to completely restart the system to get rid of it, because I am not able to "surf" the internet. It seems to be linked to an icon that showed up a couple of months ago, an icon that requires be to chose "allow now" or "allow and remember". Located to the left of the web browser line.
