I delete Google from the list of available search engines, but it keeps reappearing

Veröffentlicht

I've been deleting Google from the list of available search engines from the "Search" settings tab, but it keeps reappearing, not as the default search engine, but as a potential search engine. Although I could just ignore Google, I don't like it there. Firefox is the most configurable browser, and it does respect users' decisions and preferences, except in this matter. How can I permanently delete Google from my search engines list?

Try to rename/remove search.json.mozlz4 in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed to reset the search engine registry file.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
