Bing keeps coming up as my search engine default website, and I want to remove it, but I don't know how. Can you help me remove this program?

Posted

The website Bing has infiltrated my computer and I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of it. I was told to delete "search bar" from my program files, and I did that. And, then I was told to delete any extensions that were unknown, and I deleted one that had been installed the other day. But, Bing is still coming up as the default page on Firefox. Can you help me get rid of it? Thanks in advance.

See:


You can open the about:config page via the location bar and do a search for bing via the Filter at the top of that page.
You can reset all related prefs via the right-click context menu to their default values.
