My Firefox Browser has now defaulted to Bing as the Search engine. I have gone to Options--- set Google as default search engine

             --- removed Bing from "One click search engines"
             ---- Checked "Extensions"  .. Bing NOT mentioned.
             ---- Checked "Plug-ins" .. Bing NOT mentioned.

Start-up Manager has no mention of "Bing" How can I get rid of Bing and get back to Google as my default search engine?

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; (<Control> [Mac=<Command>] <Shift> A)

In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Remove “ Bing “ Anything.

Also remove SafeSearch, SearchAssist Incognito, FileConverter Addon, SearchLock, DiscreteSearch, WebSearch, Findwide Search Engine, securedsearch

Now do the same in the computer’s Programs Folder.

Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the Applications folder. Linux: Check your user manual.
