Resetting Mozilla Firefox Browser

There are lots of reasons why you might have to reset your internet browsers. Basically what can happen is your browsers can get hi-jacked / taken over by plug-ins and / or search engines that direct you to search results and pages that they want you to see. Even a simply search, instead of the results that are relevant it takes you to a set of results that want to take you to pages that will infect your computer. Malwarebytes and Spybot are very good programs for cleaning some of this stuff up however it will not get your browsers back into working order. Please see the instructions below for resetting Mozilla Firefox back to factory settings. Google Chrome?
