    I currently use Mozilla Firefox as my web browser. Usually, I can type a search phrase directly into the navigation/address bar, hit enter, and the search phrase will be brought up through google. Now it appears as though my search is being routed first through www.finderactive.com. It will still have the search results from google present, but it's clear that it's not actually Google's site. There's literally no information available for finderactive so below is a HJ log since I couldn't clean it myself.

    type "about:config" in the address bar of firefox.
    find and modify "keyword.URL"
    To return it to the default "I'M Feeling Lucky" google search setting, here is the text
