You can probably find complete tutorial videos on YouTube, but I cleaned a machine the other day by accessing the about:config of Firefox. Search for "Babylon" and you can remove it from there. I have not reloaded Firefox on this machine yet. Once I do, I will post back any clarifications to the directions.

Yes it's lurking in Firefox's add-ons

Thanks, MASQ! I just loaded Firefox and the accepted post covers everything, including accepting the "I'll be careful, I promise!" prompt. Good luck.

Best regards and happy coding,

thank you Masqueraid. However, once there what are the values to be reset to?  Does that delete Babylon from my computer?

You reset the values found by the search on "babylon". You can then go into the Add-Ons and disable it there.
