bing comes up when, for instance, I enter "amazon" in the address bar instead of taking me directly to Amazon.com. i can't find "bing" in any folders, remove programs in control panel (windows xp), the registry or FireFox add-ons.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Hello Dick.

Hopefully this support article is what you need:

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Searches+are+redirected+to+another+site

Also, just so you know, this kind of changes are often due to users installing other software (like firewalls, media players and things like that) that bundle "make SEARCH.COM your default search engine" with them. Some users forget to read what their doing and just press next next next, and this happens... Just for future reference.
