Default Why I am avoiding Foxit PDF reader

I am now boycotting foxit after it's most recent version installed a browser search bar (ask.com) without asking me and then proceeded to change my home page to an obscure web link that malwarebytes blocked as insecure. In previous versions of foxit there was an installer option to prevent this but not in the current version (April 2010). If you search on various forums and blogs you will find references to this issue. I complained to filehippo.com about this and so far no response from them nor warnings on their download page for foxit. Some links related to this issue:
