when using my e-mail hotmail today when I closed it down I got stuck with the msn home page, I managed to get firefox home page back but the search is being done by BING, I do not want this I want google as before . This seems to have happened since firefox 18 was delivered
Can any body help to get this back as before

Try to reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:
Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
You can check the browser.search.defaultenginename pref(s) on the about:config page to see if it has the default Google value.
If there is a problem with searching via the default about:home page then try to reset the search engine used on the about:home page.
Reset the browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone pref via the right-click context menu to the default on the about:config page and close and restart Firefox to restore the about:home page to its default.
- Open the about:config page via the location bar
- Type in the Filter bar: mstone
- Right-click the browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone line and select: Reset
- Close and restart Firefox
If this didn't help then delete the delete the chromeappsstore.sqlite file in the Firefox Profile Folder and repeat the above.
thanks very much i use the reset app and it worked a treat , i now have the google search thanks
