I got my computer back from the shop and see that they have handed me over to Google. Firefox presence almost nil. Google scares me. Help?

I want to see Firefox in the browser box, not GOOGLE. I don't want to see Google anyplace but as a choice to use for a web search next to Yahoo and a bunch of others, as… (read more)

I want to see Firefox in the browser box, not GOOGLE. I don't want to see Google anyplace but as a choice to use for a web search next to Yahoo and a bunch of others, as it's always been. I've found out from past experience that when you give Google an inch it takes way more than a mile. I hate Google, don't trust it. I know it can provide all kinds of good things, but then when you hook up with it, that's when it pulls the rug out from under you. Never, ever trust Google. Google is evil. They remind me of the drug pusher on the school ground. Look what they did to Google images -- took them away. Also, my server (Spectrum) provides me with McAfee antivirus, but my computer shop told me that the computer would not allow Microsoft downloads with McAfee and so they installed Avast. Avast is annoying, always trying to get me to sign up and pay a lot. I'm wondering if the problem with McAfee is not caused by giving Google so much power over my browser and web searches. BTW, I'm not even sure what the difference is between a browser (like Firefox) and a search engine like Google, Yahoo etc. I just know that I like seeing Firefox in the browser box, and NOT GOOGLE. Somebody please rescue me from Google!

Certain attachments on some emails, including graphics, etc. don't show up at all in Firefox, but appear with no problem in Chrome and Safari. I have already cleared cookies and cache numerous times. This is from a newly downloaded current version of Firefox, without any intentional add-ons or extensions.

i get two error messages constantly. one telling me the site isnt tested, but it doesnt give me an option to verify the website, im pretty sure something like youtube is fine, and this is very annoying, and happens all the time on other similarly trusted sites. The other error message i get is "firefox cannot establish a connection to the server" message, which also happens all the time, on perfectly trusted, and mundane sites like netflix. How do i get in touch with some kind of support with firefox, because at this point its almost like more sites dont work than do. ive gone through al the basic troubleshoot pages, updating firefox, clearing cookies, and cache, and turning my proxy setting to "no proxy" but none of it works.
