How do I remove webssearches engine?

Posted

I somehow managed to integrate the webssearches search engine with my Firefox browser.It is very irritating as i generally use Google. I tried various ways as explained in tutorials in many websites but failed. I would like to completely remove this annoying engine. This does not show up in my Add or Remove Programs also
