I installed a program and it brought Safesearch.net into my PC. I reset my homepage to Google but whenever I open a new tab it takes me to Safesearch.net. Any ideas? How to remove Safesearch.net?

I suggest you install a powerful antivirus and use it to remove Safesearch.net virus.

In this post, you will see a step-by-step removal guide. But I still recommend you to download the antivirus, because manual removal is a complicated work, and if you don't have enough expertise, you should not adpot manual removal way.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

a. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
b. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
c. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
d. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

1. type in "about:config" in the url

2. accept "ill be careful i promise"

3. type in "new tab browser"

4. find the Safesearch.net and double click the url link.

5. replace it with what ever you like, google, yahoo, about:blank, after that everything should be the way it was.

Good luck!
