Some software wouldn't install without resetting the search engine to Yahoo! How can I set the home page searchbar (not the one on top) back to Google?

I had to install You Tube downloader as it is the software recommended by our church software. It wouldn't install without changing the default search engine to Yahoo! I thought this would be easy to change back :( how wrong I was. The search bar next to the awesome bar was no problem but the search bar that's part of the Firefox home page is stuck on Yahoo! and won't change. I tried an about:config and changed settings on browser.startup.homepage to Google but this didn't work. Please help... I like to have the Firefox homepage but the Yahoo! search is rubbish; I don't want to have to use the Google homepage. Many thanks
