Now, if that was all it had done, I could have lived with it (and fixed it, like I eventually did ... I think, after I rebooted it was back on the "homepage" when I started up FireFox, so I may have some more digging to do). However, in the process of hijacking the browser, it CLEARED MY HISTORY. I had 150+ tabs open. MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY TABS that are now GONE. I had jobs that I was going to apply to there, I had articles that I was going to read, I had on-line projects that I was in the middle of, I had e-mail accounts, I had social media things, I had blog dashboards open ... all gone. It's like somebody broke into my office and swept everything off my physical desktop into a garbage bag and dumped it.
I'm in shock, and feeling extremely violated. I am also very, very, angry. Those motherfuckers at EZvid should be very happy that they live in Los Angeles, as I might have paid their office a visit if they were here. I hope they die in a fire ... slowly, very painfully, very slowly.
