Home page and search engine

more options

I had Bing as my homepage and search engine, and that has always worked fine, for many years. But after a recent Firefox update, the browser will no longer allow Bing as my homepage and search engine, and because I had set the browser exclusively for Bing, I can't access another search engine. I liked the Bing homepage because it had a new photo every day, and most of those photos were downloadable to use as wallpapers. Looks like I may go back to Internet Explorer [I don't like Edge]. Why won't Firefox allow Bing now? - it's not a security risk.
