Foxstart, also known as or, is a search engine that can be accessed using any Internet browser. This search provider is also promoted by a computer program that installs an older version of the Mozilla Firefox browser, which also features the Foxstart extension. This new browser has Foxstart as the startup page; moreover, the browser contains multiple useless bookmarks and some advertising-supported browser add-ons. We recommend that you remove Foxstart from your computer because the search engine is powered by Google, which you can access freely as any other website.

Foxstart may seem to be a very useful search provider because the startup page of the engine features 11 tabs enabling you to access and search Google images, Google maps, Amazon, eBay, Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter, and some other websites.

We advise you against using this search engine because it may provide you with some third-party advertisements. Moreover, Foxstart collect non-personally identifiable information, including your Internet service provider, browser type, operating system, and some other anonymous details. In order to monitor you, the search engine uses browser cookies. They are not capable of collecting personally identifiable information, but, if some adware program is present on the PC, it might be using other tracking techniques to collect information about you.

If you use your new Mozilla Firefox, it is very likely that you have already encountered some pop-up advertisements provided by Pricechop or any other adware program that is distributed alongside the deceptive Internet browser. It is important to note that the developers of Mozilla Firefox are not associated with the distribution of the modified version of the browser.

Many computer users complain about Foxstart and want to remove it from the computer, and we recommend that you take action right now if you want to be secure on the Internet. Below you will find instructions on how to remove Foxstart from the browser, but it is much better to remove that modified browser and install a clean one so that you can customize it in the way you like.

We recommend that you remove Foxstart using a spyware and malware removal tool because your computer has to be protected against malware and spyware threats. We recommend that you implement SpyHunter because this real-time security program easily fixes your browsers and, most important, safeguards the operating system against Trojan horses, browser hijackers, adware programs, ransomware infections, and many other threats.
