I do not understand why Firefox has started adding a "Bing" search button to some pictures in web sites I visit. It happens with my own web site, with those of major news services and many others.

I have checked that Bing has not been added as an Add-On or Extension.

How do I get rid of it, it's a nusiance and an intrusion

hello, can you try to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once? if not, maybe one of your other addons is interfering here...

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.

This did the trick,it's justa shame I now loose all the useful tools that those apps made available, but I'd rather that than having malware sitting on my PC. Thanks.
