Bing is popping up on my home screen whenever I want to search. And then it stays there. Bing also steals my search when I use Goggle. The only search engine showing under Customize is Google. It's google I want. I have followed Bing's instructions for removal as well as a couple I have found here by poring through Options, Customize, Extensions and Add-ons, and Help, as part of several found instructions. I am running Firefox Quantum Mozilla under Windows 10 with Google as my search.

And I cannot find nor get rid of Bing.

I can go to https://account.microsoft.com and log in successfully and visit other Microsoft sites like outlook.com. However, when I go to bing.com it shows "Sign in" and when clicked I am briefly taken to login.live.com and then back to bing.com without actually being logged in. I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled, content blocking setting is at Standard. I have cleared cookies/web data and tried adding both URLs to Exceptions Cookies and Site Data. However, nothing seems to work.

Several times over the past 3 weeks, Firefox has reset to default between uses. There were no updates installed, and I made no changes to the settings after changing them from the default. Specifically, Firefox reset my homepage to Bing, and reset my default search tool to Bing.

I want these resets to stop, and for my saved settings to remain. How can I accomplish this without either Mozilla support or Firefox changing it without my knowledge.

Bing has 'invaded' my computer and substituted itself as the search engine with Firefox - I do not want Bing!

I have for many years used Firefox with Google as the search engine.

Today out of the blue Bing appeared as the search engine - without me manually changing anything.

I want to use Google as my preferred search engine

It seems that Bing has invaded as a malware would perhaps on the back of some other invasive add on or similar.

I have gone to options and settings and after removing Bing (supposedly) it reappears when I do a search.

Very frustrating for an occasional user.

Hey all, I am really getting tired of seeing the "news and interests" pics that pop up from bottom of home page using Firefox. Can I remove, delete or otherwise get RID of it...? I use bing as a home page...maybe that's the problem...LOL...! I just like it because it's simple and uncluttered EXCEPT for those damn pics at the bottom. I can turn them off with the custom control pull down...the 3 bars on the upper right side of bing home page, but after you close FF, the pics just come back...the custom controls for bing home page don't stay locked...! I'm using Windows 10, x64 Home, latest FF updates, only using ABP, BitWarden, as FF Add-ons.

Thanks
