Several updates were installed last night, 02132014, and now Bing hijacks my searches. I've removed bing from my programs and removed Microsoft Search but it still takes over when I try to do a search in the address bar.

hello r2c2nu, please see if you can resolve the issue by running the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customizations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

since you also have the apphat addon present, which appears to be malicious, also run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner!
