How to Get Rid Of iMesh Seach Engine in FireFox Browser

firefox iMesh search

I just spent a good amount of time troubleshooting a computer to get rid of iMesh search engine page which automatically loads when FireFox Web Browser is started. It can be very irritating as you cannot have any other Home page. The Home page you set will automatically be reset to “search.imesh.net” by this annoying addon!

After much research and trial and error, I found a solution to completely get rid of iMesh Search Engine from FireFox Browser.
