Remove tab

Hi, I just want to open a topic about After downloading ilivid from softonic, I notice some changes on my firefox. Each time I open this program, another tab opens that has a link I can easily close the tab but doing it consistently is somehow uneasy. I don’t want this new tab and I am contented with Google as my default search engine.

So, please tell me how to stop from adding a new tab on my browser. After running several scan using various product, no infected is identified on my computer. Does it mean that is not a virus or some kind of threat? If security program cannot remove it, what can I do to stop it?
Believe me; having on the PC is very frustrating. I even uninstall ilivid from the computer but it didn’t help me remove tab.

    Hi there, I found this post while browsing precisesecurity forum and though to put my opinion on this.
    To set Google as your default browser search engine and to stop opening new tabs of mysearchresults, you just need to do a couple of things. Firefox: Click the orange “Firefox” button on the top left then click Options. On General tab, click Restore to Default. IE: From the Tools menu select Internet Options. On the General tab click Restore to Default. Chrome: Click on the Wrench icon next to the address bar. Select Options and on the basics tab set your default home page.

    Also, I have been using mysearchresults toolbar for last 1.5 years and I have never encountered any issue with this. As per as i know, this program has passed all security scans and absolutely safe, spyware and malware-free website by Symantec, McAfee and Virus Total, so you can definitely trust it.

    This add-on is not a virus that is why antivirus program will never flag it. To resolve your problem, you can always uninstall the add-on by going to Tools>Add-ons. Anyway, here are some methods to remove from your Firefox browser.

    Removing from Mozilla Firefox:
    1. Open Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser.
    2. On Google’s Search box, click the “arrow down” beside the logo.
    3. Select “Manage Search Engine” from the drop-down list.
    4. Choose your desired search default and click the button “Move up.” It should be on the top of the list to set it as default.
    5. You can now remove other installed search engine.

    Remove search box on new tab
    1. Go to Tools–>Add-ons
    2. Highlight Default Tab and click the Options button
    3. Clear the check box next to “Show search on new tabs”
