Have to uninstall and reinstall firefox to revert it back to Google search again. Want to know how to change it without uninstall and reinstall.
To revert to the default Google search:
- Type about:config into the location bar and press enter
- Accept the warning message that appears, you will be taken to a list of preferences
- Locate the preference keyword.URL, right-click on it and choose Reset
This will make Firefox show a Google search result page when searching from the address bar. You can change it to the Firefox 3.6 behavior of going straight to the site if there is a clear match by double-clicking on keyword.URL and changing it to the link shown below:
If it still goes to Bing after changing keyword.URL, there will be an add-on that is causing this behavior. To track down what one you can use the procedure in this link - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes
