To get into the UEFI settings of a "HP Pavilion - 15-cc023cl" Press the Escape key repeatedly while and after pressing the power button.
From there you should be able to change boot options (legacy or not, which device to boot from, etc)

I think I recall that yanking the CMOS battery for a few should reset the BIOS to no password.

Some of the newer ones that doesn't work. Try it and let us know
N.B. Taking out the CMOS will change the BIOS settings and you'll have to reconfigure the boot options again

When clicking the Firefox icon (I usually use Chromium so I don't know when this problem started) I get the following error

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

So I tried running it in a terminal

mirknight@U410:~$ firefox 
Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory.

sudo firefox works fine but I'd prefer to not use root for a browser as I can imagine some serious security risks

Update: mirknight/.cache/mozilla directory is owned by root

Yup. recursive Chmod.
It gave an error saying it wasn't responding so I deleted both the mirknight/.cache/mozilla and mirknight/.mozilla.
Working fine.

Clam is a terminal-based application, you might want a GUI front-end such as KlamAV

I've been using Manjaro the past few months and it's worked too perfectly and I haven't had anything to fix. Which almost makes me sad
