I set Google as the default, remove every other search engine from the search options page including the generic search with magnifying glass sign, and every time I open Firefox, everything is back as it was before the changes. This is extremely frustrating! I have tried the answers here as well as any answers I could understand in a search, and nothing works. Supposedly this was a problem with version 34 and fixed after that, but I am using 38.0.5! Solving this should not be as difficult as it is!

I am running Vista Ultimate (32 bit).

I already have a local-settings.js file calling a mozilla.cfg file to set other preferences. I also have an override.ini file. I'm trying to set the default search engine back to Google for my entire environment when deploying Firefox.

I have tried:

user_pref("browser.search.defaultenginename", "Google"); user_pref("browser.search.defaultenginename.US", "Google");

In a user.js and all.js file. The former in the user profile the latter in the install_dir\defaults\pref folder (when I try this in mozilla.cfg Firefox won't open). Neither option works, and my search engine is still Yahoo.

When I run about:config it shows:

browser.search.defaultenginename;Google browser.search.defaultenginename.US;data:text/plain,browser.search.defaultenginename.US=Yahoo

If I manually set my search engine to Google I have:

browser.search.defaultenginename;Google browser.search.defaultenginename.US;Google

I have tried everything I can find to stop bing.vc from opening as the start page in firefox version 39 and so far nothing has worked. I am unable to find any reference to in in about:config; a refresh of firefox did not help; no add-ons refer to it and conduit or search protect do not appear in uninstall programs in control panel. No malware removal tool has any effect on it and I have used all that were recommended on the Mozilla support site. Help please!!

Not every time, but very often it happens, when i start to type, especially google search, after few letters the focus goes to page search (i made the setting that search starts with typing automatically, no need ctrl-f). But it should be still at google search field. Happens on fb chat window also, and i think anywhere it can happen, the matter is that the website lose the focus and goes to mozilla.

I hose sat for a friend a while back. I left my PC running so room-mate could use it. Upon returning I could not access my chosen search engine (duckduckgo), I get this as the effort

"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at duckduckgo.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

In fact I cannot access ANY search engine....... However it works on my tablet so I know it still exists and I grilled my room-mate who denies using the pc or downloading anything..... (he is fairly pc ignorant so I kinda believe him).

So what settings could have suddenly come into place that block me from my chosen search engine? (FTR I cannot access search engines in IE either and I HATE IE so having to check there made me feel unclean). (I also checked with the anti virus and cannot see that it is blocking me but Kaspersky was shut down and still no search engines so I do not believe it is the issue).

I have tried for weeks to get access to my search engine and am so stumped I now go to you.

I want Firefox to only use google as the search engine for the top right search dialog. However, whenever I delete all the other search engines using search engine preferences, after a few days it invariably adds youtube search on its own, and eventually others (such as wikipedia).

I do not technically mind having the other search engine button in the popup, but what I really want to get rid of is firefox sometimes randomly sending me to the search preferences page when i type something in the search dialog and hit enter (which seems to coincide with having multiple search engines set). Sometimes it even simply randomly uses youtube search when I want to google.

I hate hate hate the "awesome bar." I want to use it for searches with my default search engine and NOT with whatever search engine I happened to use last.

There used to be an extension for this but I believe it was obsoleted with some previous Firefox "upgrade."

Instead of having to change my search engine every time I want to search, is there a key combo to change the current search engine back to the default - i.e., to reactivate the default search engine?

I saw the keyboard shortcuts document (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly). It does not do what I want, I do not want to scroll through my list of installed search engines, I just want to jump to the default.

I don't even know why they call it the default anymore.

But it appears they no longer function as of firefox 39 and 40. How can I change the default search engine for all of my users back to Google in the current version? Is this going to break all the time?

Cannot use any search engine in FF 40.0.3 on Macbook Pro model 9,2 with OS 10.8.5. Receive "Unable to connect" message when attempting to use a search engine. Websites other than Mozilla and search engines connect fine. FireFox 40.0.3 on a different Mac works fine with no problems.

In addition, I cannot access the FF "Get Add-Ons" page or the Mozilla home page. Search engines will not connect from either the search bar or their home page. Problem just started. I had previously updated to, and have been using, FF 40.0.3 without problem when it was issued. Attempted solutions have included FF refresh, run FF in safe mode, run with all plug-ins disabled, disabled hardware graphics acceleration. None of these corrected the problem.

When I go to the main Firefox screen, I frequently get notified of various things that I might find of interest, such as how to opt out of the Windows 10 express install. I am probably in the minority but I don't like someone reading to me via videos. I like to read things for myself, always have. Is there a place where I might find text with pictures instead of these videos? Plus I can print off the text which makes it easier and I could read it anywhere. I do suffer through a video now and then if it was something of major importance. However, my internet connection is unbelievably slow. Recently I had to change a part on my laptop and wanted info on how to do it. Of course, the only info I could find was in video form. An 8 minute video took 62 minutes for me to watch, that is how slow my internet connection is. The video downloads just a few seconds at a time. It took 4 times as long to watch the video as it did for me to change the part. And that's just another reason I avoid videos. I'm surely not the only person out there who has this preference.

Every time I mispell a URL it forwards it to some search engine. I don't want this! What if I accidentally copy-pasted something personal that I didn't intend and it gets forwarded to yahoo? On the Search options I am given the option to remove all except one of them. There has to be at least one or the Remove button is greyed out. I want ALL of them gone. I don't want mispelled URLs to be redirected to a search engine.

I am running MAC OS 10.10.5 with Firefox 40.0.3. Signed up my wife for Swagbuck; however, now everytime I click the “+” to add a new window it open at “search.swagbucks.com/?f=5” and not the window showing previously sites that i Have pinned. Now I did go into “extensions” removed the Swagbuck.com extension; went to preferences and changed homepage to the window i want and I did change the search engine to google and deleted “swagbucks” search engine and then I restarted Firefox. With all this I still get “search.swagbucks.com/?f=51“ whenever I click “+” to add a window.

I NEED HELP in getting rid of this annoying, in my opinion, “MALWARE”

Thanks in advance for your help.
