How to remove Private Browsing a.k.a. My Private Search from my laptop (Windows 10) completely?

HP Recommended
HP ProBook 430
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The Private Browsing a.k.a. MyPrivateSearch was installed automatically in my Firefox. It is not letting me open and use google or any other search engine. Really sad. Also, I want to uninstall the McAffee application too, really unsatistfied, by the way, the McAffee application and stuff was installed automatically too. And, when I search for images and click on the images button, it does not open and instead another tab is opened with the same content as the previous tab. What  do I do? :Crying:

The "Always use Private Browsing" is controlled within Firefox.

 

The setting may be a result of the "Never Save History" setting:

 

  • Set Firefox to save your history -- or set Custom settings for History to dis-engage the "Always" setup.

 

Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history

 

See the Section: Can I set Firefox to always use Private Browsing?

McAfee can be removed with the McAfee removal tool.

 

  • Download and run McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool or MCPR from the McAfee site

 

Reference:

Uninstall McAfee Internet Security from Windows 10
