My firefox homepage and keyword.URL have been hijacked by "eSnips". It's incredibly persistent and resists all attempts to change. How do I kick its ass?
Switched to Firefox 4 Beta 7 yesterday, terrific stuff, got all my addons et al. The problem is, my homepage seems to be locked to this page
. My keyword.URL is changed to their search engine. Whenever I change those entries in my prefs.js, they get to reset to the eSnips values every time I restart Firefox.
My search engines were also changed to default to Yahoo!, but I fixed that by deleting all the search engines I don't need, so it's just the keyword.URL and homepage now.
I've tried these ideas:
Checking to see if prefs.js is locked or not
Adding homepage and keyword.URL data to a user.js
Run virus/malware checks everywhere
Creating a new profile did solve it, but when I migrated all my profile data (except prefs.js), the problem reappeared. So it's somewhere in my profile folder, and I suspect it's one of my addons/plugins (I can't imagine which though, I got them all from Mozilla's addons page and none of them are particularly suspicious-looking).
Will post Troubleshooting Information if requested.
