I keep trying to change my default address bar search back to Google, but it resets to another browser each time I close Firefox. I have gone in to the "about:config" page and changed the keyword.url to "http://www.google.com/search?&q=" but once I reopen Firefox, the value for keyword.url is back to "http://search.conduit.com/ResultsExt.aspx?ctid=CT3072253&SearchSource=2&q=" which presents as a Bing search if I search in the address bar.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
