Hi, I have a weird issue with firefox upon the initial launch. When I turn on the computer and click on the firefox icon, it shows microsoft bing then I close that tab and I'm back to the firefox homepage on the next tab. It's like somehow it's merged with firefox and I tried adjusting the settings and nothing works.

You can check the target line in the Firefox desktop shortcut (right-click: Properties) to make sure nothing is appended after the path to the Firefox program.
You can do a malware scan just to be sure.
I'm having the same problem BING been my homepage and not the Firefox homepage. This has started with version 89.0.2 (64-bit) Firefox has been updated.
Are you talking about the home page? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-set-the-home-page
Or the search engine? Type about:preferences#search<enter> in the address bar. You can select any search engine to be your default from here.
You can also remove any engine from here.
You can check for recently installed suspicious or unknown extensions.
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
