Why does my search engine default to "search encrypt" version of Google?

When I search for a website with Firefox, the search engine defaults to an engine that has "search encrypt" next to the web site window. My actual default search engine is Google, and I have disabled the "search encrypt" option, but it is still there. With this particular search engine, I just get a bunch of ads, and cannot frequently even get the web site itself. Attached is a screen shot of the search encrypt page when I try to google "Three Crowns Golf Course, Wy). Thanks for the help. Jack Goodrich

PS. I tried to upload the screen shot, have waited 5 minutes, still won't upload.
