How do I get rid of Google Custom Search as my default search?
Every time I start FF it has Google Custom Search in the location bar search box. I have delete it multiple times, but the next time I start FF, it is back in the box. I want Bing as my primary search engine. How do I get rid of the Google Custom Search???
Also, how do I get rid of that CouponNetwork Coupon Activator? I have looked for it to delete the file, but can't find it. How do I get rid of it??

Please follow the instructions on this page to change your default search engine https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Search%20bar?s=Change+Default+Search+Engine&as=s#w_switching-search-engines . If after following those instructions it keeps coming back we will have to dig a little deeper. The Coupon Network Coupon Activator should appear on the the list of programs in the Add / Remove Programs section of Control panel.
That page didn't & has not worked. I have gone through & deleted all the search engines except Bing, probably 15-20 times. When I restart FF Google Custom Search is back in the list & is displayed in the seach box, even though Bing is listed first or the only one in the management section & supposed to be the default.
On the Coupon Activator, that is what I thought also, but it is not listed on the Add/Remove program. I have even done a search on my drive for that filename, but it can't be found.
Any other ideas for both problems???
