Hello, I have been using Firefox happily for sometime without any issues and getting on to websites quickly.

Then recently, clicked on a link on my phone sent by Firefox to sinc the Iphone and laptop in Firefox together.

This resulted in messing up my desktop (and I lost the very nice colour scheme that I had before) and made getting on to web sites very slow, if not impossible on my Laptop.

I then reloaded firefox to try and resolve but since then I am hounded by Google. I did not have this problem with Google before, and I don't think that I was being forced to use it. However I do now seem to be forced to use Google if I want to search for anything? and Google is asking me to sign into its account?

I don't want to sign into a Google account!

Am I right that I used to be able to search without Google just by keying into the firefox box at the top?

I don't actually know what the setting was before I started on this upgrade and so don't know how to get back to how I was?

Are you able to assist?
