Using Firefox 31 home page is Bing search.
Ten seconds after Firefox loads the download arrow flashes as if it loaded something.
Only new addon is adblock plus but disabling it makes no difference
Have Avast internet security installed and have scanned with Superantispyware and malwarebytes and not fixed.
Tried uninstall and reinstall new version but am doing something wrong as new version loads with all my old settings (including the problem).
Have backed up settings with Mozbackup.
How do do a fresh install without all my old settings?
