Description

4 years ago
These add-ons use randomly-generated IDs, and names with random permutations of capitalization. We'll need to block by name, case-insensitively, *without* anchoring:

/search-newtab/

or, possibly, /^s?search-newtab.?$/

Users affected by these extensions number in the thousands, and it seems to be associated with searches being hijacked by an engine called 'WebSearch'

Closing old blocklist requests that shouldn't be valid after the move to WebExtensions-only in Firefox 57. Please comment if you think this bug is still valid and should be reopened.
