How do I change address bar search back to Google?

I keep trying to change my default address bar search back to Google, but it resets to another browser each time I close Firefox. I have gone in to the "about:config" page and changed the keyword.url to "http://www.google.com/search?&q=" but once I reopen Firefox, the value for keyword.url is back to "http://search.conduit.com/ResultsExt.aspx?ctid=CT3072253&SearchSource=2&q=" which presents as a Bing search if I search in the address bar.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There are a few other settings you may need to change. Check out this thread and see whether that helps: How to I remove "search conduit," and "mywebsearch?" | Firefox Support Forum | Firefox Help.

  1. Click Firefox (on the top left of the browser), options, enable the conduit-based toolbar (in my case uTorrent bar and uTorrentControl2),
  2. Click the configure button on the right (I see a little grey wrench), click the Additional Settings tab, and make sure the box for "Enable search from address bar." is UNchecked.
