How to remove Conduit browser hijacker malware?

catamount

I used to use FreeFileSync a few years ago and liked it, so I recently installed it on a Windows laptop. Unfortunately, they decided to add conduit malware as part of the package, which is a browser hijack. How can I get rid of it? I’m on a Windows 7 machines using the Firefox browser.
