How do I get rid of BING search engine and get my old Google search engine back


I downloaded the new Firefox and it gave me the BING search engine bar and took away my Google search engine bar. Please tell me how I can get my Google search engine bar back.

I did go into add-ons but cannot find anything for BING

Thank you

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
