I switch my default search to Duck duck go, remove all others and when I restart Firefox; Google is back and set as my default search engine. If I wanted anything to do with Google I'd use Chrome.

It sounds like the site your using isn't the problem but the settings sounds like it is messed up in firefox. Did you look there at your "Options" to see what is set at.

Hi kulajon, instead of removing other search engine plugins, try just "un-checking" them so they don't appear on the one-click search engines list. Any difference?

Your search engine preferences are saved in a file named search.json.mozlz4 in your currently active profile folder (Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data).

Are those the only settings you lose between Firefox sessions?
