bing hijacked my home page...how do I re set it to google
I was trying to download a pdf converter from autocad. My antivirus software found no issues but it seemed to contain some spyware. I stopped the download, exited firefox. When I relaunched firefox Bing was my home page not google as previously set. I'd like to return my preferred search engine to google. How to I do that?

Uninstall the SearchToolbar/1.2 that was installed into Firefox by that PDF converter program.
Tools > Addons > Extensions = highlight that extension and then use the Uninstall button.
Thanks. Simple enough
