Windows 7: I have a virus I can't kill

I have a virus I can't kill

I didn't think about it being a virus at first because it's not hiding. It attaches right under my search in Firefox. It has a pull down box. It looks like this: see attachment

When you pull down it says things like "past hour, past 24 hours, past week, past month, past year.

I ran Malware bytes, Revo, Microsoft Essential and Ad aware. They didn't find anything. Ifinfo I get info on what I was searching for. For some reason I thought it was GSTATIC. I. When I put Revo in Hunter mode and dragged it over this box it says to delete Mozilla Firefox.exe. I did delete and re-install no change. Maybe it's trying to make people stop using Firefox.

I'm starting to worry about it sitting there. Have you seen or heard of it before?

As I recall that was a "feature" added to Firefox a while back (I don't remember exactly when). Some developer must have thought it a good idea to let the user select the search history time frame just in case you wanted to look for something again.

I don't recall how I got rid of it, maybe when I installed the Classic Theme Restorer.

You might try opening about:config and toggle "browser.search.showOneOffButtons" to "false" and see if that helps.
