Hi, I've been using FIrefox for years. I have a new computer now and I downloaded Firefox. But when I use the browsing bar, my choices are Google not Firefox. Google is not even installed on this computer. How did that happen?

Hi, google is the default search engine in both the search bar and if you have turned on search in the address bar. Please see if you have it turned on to search in both places : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-suggestions-firefox

If this is not the issue please expand further on your issue.

Firefox is a web browser and Google in this case is a search engine.

Google is the default search engine on some locales while other locales have different defaults. https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2017/11/14/firefox-features-google-as-default-search-provider-in-the-u-s-canada-hong-kong-and-taiwan/
