    I have taken the liberty to move this from the Spywareblaster Forum to a more appropriate Forum.

    Since "firefox got a browser hijack" is not quite enough to go on....Please provide a little more info concerning this hijack.

    what happened was firefox had the options to remember passwords and names that were entered and it was set to let every site leave cookies and remember history. it stopped doing it. i scanned with everything i have and they came up blank. and idk how to use hijack this.

    That doesn't sound like a hijack. Sounds more like a setting error.
