I tried to uninstall DuckDuckGo, have replaced with Bing, but DuckDuck won't go away, & appears when I click Mozilla Firefox.

DuckDuckGo has bad habit of every now and then asking me to Download privacy essentials again. It's a big ugly add. Couldn't stand to see it. So I uninstalled DuckDuckGo as search engine. Selected Bing as search engine. Shut down my computer. Restarted. And DuckDuckGo still appears as search engine, even though in Options/Search I have clicked Bing as my search engine. How do I get rid of DuckDuckGo once and for all?

hi, can you look in the firefox menu > addons > extensions section if DDG is still listed there and if so remove it? Disable or remove Add-ons
