When I start firefox 63.0 32-bit version in Safe mode as well as in normal mode Firefox tries to make a connection to the website cnhv.co. After reading from various malware forums it appears that cnhv.co has links to crypto mining software and as well as the notorious conhive.com. Firefox does not attempt to connect to any other website apart from cnhv.co. When firefox starts on my laptop it creates 4 processes. One parent/main process and 3 child processes. All the 3 processes try to connect to cnhv.co website. Starting the firefox in safe mode or after resetting it still leads to the same behaviour. Only firefox exhibits this behaviour when I try to launch it and when I shut it down. Other browsers do not.

So my question is as follows 1) How do I determine which process or what setting or the location of the infection that is causing Firefox to connect to cnhv.co? 2) How do I fix this? How do I clean Firefox such that it does not connect to any crypto website at startup and shutdown?
