I've been scouring the internet for a few days now looking for a solution as to how to permanently remove Bing as my default browser, but none of them have worked. Every time I open Nightly, I go to options, and check to see the default search engine. It's always Bing. So I delete Bing, and change it to Google. Well, when I close the browser, I have a nice surprise waiting for me. Bing.
I've spent almost all day scanning my computer with different anti-virus/malware programs, deleted several viruses (hopefully there aren't any more), and it still happens. I've started Nightly in safe mode with all of the add-ons off, and it still happens. Went to about:config, prefs.js, user.js, and searched for invalidprefs.js (and so on), and nothing worked.
One thing I've noticed, is after having refreshed Nightly (I don't want to go through the whole changing my settings and customization thing again, so no screenshots), the list of browsers had Bing twice. One on top (the one that comes with the browser), and one on bottom (the one that keeps getting added). For this reason, I think it could be malware, or some unwanted program that I, for the life of me, cannot find in file explorer or control panel.
Any help would be appreciated, as this issue is incredibly infuriating, thank you.
