    Damn, such a pain in the ass.

    When I open a new tab and type something, results show up from Bing search, an example below.

    If I click on it, it takes me to Bing.

    How do I remove it ? I've tried to perform tens of actions found in Google, nothing seems to help.

    'Manage Search Engines'
    'Remove from Cpanel'
    'Remove from Addons/Exestions'
    'Remove cunduit search'

    I've done all of it, same results.

    Anyone suggestions ?

    +22 rep to winner :D

    Cheers.

    type about:config in address bar
    then on the top side you'll see search bar, type search and you'll get some results, set everything default and it'll be fine....

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

    Maybe this, maybe not:)

    I have no idea who or what installed this feature.

    I'm very careful with toolbars and such shit.

    The feeling is mutual. Look at what I'm suffering from. The shit pops up whenever I open a new tab too. Curse you author....
