I'm back and I resolved the problem my-self. This is what you have to do... 1) Type in search "about:config" and click "ok" when the warning comes up; 2) in search type "browsers.search.selectedEngine" 3) now right click on "browers.search.selectedEngine" and choose from menu "new" and now choose "string" and just write "Google" and click "ok". That's it and your done. Now I have my faithful Google back and so will you. I was a little frightened at first because I know if I make a mistake that I would have to possibly re-install Firefox but all worked okay and was very easy to do. Just make sure that you re-check before you click "ok".
