I installed K-Lite Codec pack and it installed Bing(R) as a search provider and reset my homepage to Bing (in Firefox, but not PaleMoon). I don't like or use Bing. While this isn't the most nefarious example, it reminded me that this is still a thing.
Looking for a shield or poison, I came across several recommendations for BrowserProtect (sevenforums, SuperUser). Running it through a search, I see many things calling or implying that BrowserProtect is some kind of malware. Also, the extension was removed by its author.
Is there a comparable extension or other software that can fulfill this same goal?
