First of all, if your reading this, chances are you have been invaded by the scum which is Babylon Search / Toolbar so you will completely understand the frustraion this piece of crap has caused me.
After searching for hours on information on how to remove this I found no solution which worked. The horrible little thing kept returning. Mainly in the form of the Address bar keyword searching.
So, here’s a quick quide on how to remove it.
Firstly i’m going to assume you have done all the obvious things, uninstalling any programs related to babylon, removed the search plugins from firefox and so on. so lets move on from there.
(64bit) C:/Program Files (x86)/Mozilla Firefox/searchplugins/
(32bit) C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/searchplugins/
and delete the file babylon.xml and any other refferences to babylon you may find.
Open firefox, and in your address bar type “about:config” (without the quotes)
click to procedd past the warning and in the filter bar, type in babylon.
You should see a bunch of entries as shown in the screenshot below. right click each one of these and choose “Reset”
The horrible piece of crap that is Babylon should no longer cause you any problems. If there are other places that this thing hides leave a comment and let me know and i’ll update this post. Time to rid the internet Babylon.
