I use a Bing Searchbox in Firefox Browser. When I do a search, I get a popup at the bottom of my screen asking me if I want to download Microsoft Edge. It gives me two options: Download now, or later. I have to hit "later" to get rid of it.

Is there a way for me to delete this popup in Firefox. I don't want Edge. I want Firefox. Please let me know if there is a solution to this. Thank you!

Note that Bing is a web search engine owned and operated by Microsoft so they are being sneaky or persistent in trying to get more Edge users.

You may be able to block this with a Ad blocking type of extension as mentioned in /questions/1293032
