How do permanently change keyword.URL from Google.
I have tried to change the keyword.URL from Google. I am able to change the config entry, but when I restart Firefox, keyword.url reverts back to Google.

For possible causes see How to fix preferences that won't save, I would first check for a user.js file that could be overriding the preference.
Thanks for the reply. I followed the directions in the referenced article, but it did not help. But, it did spur my thought processes. I started looking for something that could lock down my configuration. I found out that the AVG toolbar apparently does just that. Once I disabled the toolbar I was able to change the keyword.URL. The toolbar is no longer on my system.
