Skrevet

Ever since I updated my adobe flash player Firefox keeps changing the default search engine to Bing. I go in to preferences and change back to Google but it repeatedly defaults back to Bing. Any suggestions?

Regarding part 2 of the above:

Now do the same in the computer’s Programs Folder.
  • Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs.
  • Mac: Open the Applications folder.
  • Linux: Check your user manual.

More specifically, find your way to this folder:

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/defaults/pref

A file named channel-prefs.js is normal here. Any other file in this folder is suspicious if you do not remember creating it yourself. Remove any such files to a neutral location for further analysis at your leisure.
