Search engine switched to Bing
My browser recently updated to 83.0 and the search engine switched to Bing. When I go to Preferences - Search, the default search engine is listed as Google. Even if type something in the bar and then click on the Google icon, it searches on Bing. If I click on the DuckDuckGo icon, it searches on DuckDuckGo. How can I switch my search engine to Google?

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