    anyone had this malware of sort before? it makes my firefox start with some search site instead of my intended home site.

    i fear the problem is more serious than that though, any help? how to remove it manually?

    I personally use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I don't get viruses anymore, but when I did I used this to remove them.

    It does for me, so it should for you unless you somehow got an elite-level virus.

    They make money from you searching stuff on their search. They will also install adware with extremely annoying pop up ads.

    This worked for me when I had it.
