Do NOT install Quant browser extension!

Quant publish a browser extension for Firefox which claims to add thier search engine, which it does, but it also acts like malware and takes over your browser. It changes your home page, prevents you changing it back without removing the extension and takes control of tracking protection. Installing Quant REDUCED my privacy by turning off some of Firefox's built in tracking protection. There is no need for this behaviour just to add a search engine, avoid this malware!
