A few weeks ago I downloaded a file from a link; I shouldn't have. I still have the link but it's bad. So, I used Kaspersky to clean things up and also ADWCleaner which seemed to work. The whatever it was besides being very active (I should have immediately turned off the modem but like an idiot I didn't), also reset my default search engine to Trovi.com etc. OK, pretty much cleaned up. A friend of mine recommended ComboFix which I also used yesterday. It was pretty busy and deleted a lot of stuff (but I'm not sure what they were; lots from temp folders). Anyway, Chrome and IE run OK now. HOWEVER, when I installed FireFox, it comes up with the junk in the attached image. So I'm not sure what the problem with Mozllla is. Any suggestions?

Try running AdwCleaner again.

Didn't work. Downloaded Mozilla fresh install, installed it and again, same thing. Trying Malwarebytes.

You could try creating a new Firefox profile.

Apparently (and I say that tentatively) MalWareBytes worked. Found a ton of Zoompic files and quarantined them all. Just ran Firefox and so far no issues.
