How do I get my old Google search bar back.


I downloaded the new Firefox and it took away my old reliable Google search engine and replace it with "BING". How do I get rid of BING search engine and get Google back?

Thank you

Hi rozen101......Dont worry about loosing your google toolbar, its happened to us all...now what to do is the thing..this is what I did, default search engine goto up to the top right & between google&Icon click the wee point down arrow & delete the rest,bye bye bing. &goto google.co.uk if you want to drag your homepage over to the homepage icon top right, other bing parts are included in the Windows messenger,live,etc & can be a pain esp when one dont want them. I deleted Bing toolbar with a programe named WinDerStat but it still stays in microsoft all programes & toolbar list even though I know its gone, So always check if you can, dont delete SYSTEM FILES. Go to forum & click most requested and read some of the things about SearchEQ&Babalon etc etc Good hunting......liamo777
