Though the Help files says that the "Awesome Bar" uses Google search, it is actually using Bing. I want it to use Google. How can I change it. Please note that I am talking about the "Awesome Bar" a.k.a. Address bar - not the Search Bar. Thanks.

Did you or do you have a "Community Toolbar" installed? Your address bar search runs through Conduit, which is the company behind most of those toolbars.

To reset your search to Google, the simplest method is an add-on, but you also can do it manually.

Any luck?
