I've deleted it from search enginve options. Disabled Cortana. Searched for it on my computer but couldn't find it. The search engine says google but when I search it goes to Bing. When I search for Google and try that way the same thing happens. It only happens with Google and not with other engines like Duckduckgo. I would like Google back what do I do?

Hi   Tufftie,
You probably already tried this,   but just in case:

In Windows:
Are you sure that in   'Settings'  you removed   'Bing'   and replaced it with   'Google'   ?

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac=<Command>)<Shift> A)

In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Remove Bing Anything. Now do the same in the computers Programs Folder.

Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.

Hi again Tufftie   !
We're not just going to give up,   let's try this: 'Add or remove a search engine in Firefox':   http://mzl.la/1VShhHu
Now, let's see if this will work.
Good luck and please, keep us posted   !

Hi Tufftie, where are you entering your search?

  • Inside Firefox, you have many options, including:
    • the address bar (where the URL of the current page usually appears)
    • the search bar (once you start typing, a small panel drops down with various search engine icons)
    • a bar in one of Firefox's built-in pages, such as the home page or new tab page
    • somewhere else?
  • Outside of Firefox, for example, in the Windows 10 system-wide search box -- sometimes can be diverted from Bing to a different site but it depends on the exact code Microsoft puts into the URL.

Bummer   !!!
Did this by any chance start after the   Microsoft Anniversary Update   ?

Hiya,
I don't want to be a pain in the you-know-where,   but it took me hours and hours to finally find   Bing   in the Windows10-menu:   it's well-hidden:   you have to scroll down and scroll down some more and than scroll down even some more  .........
If   Bing   keeps showing up,   it  has   to be found somewhere   !

Try again,  just once more   ?   (I'll stop nagging about it, if you already have tried this, promise   !)

Don't shoot,   but I am just as puzzled as you are, so:
After you've done all of that again and again and you've reached the part where its says:
'search in the address bar with'  ..........
Which search engine is mentioned there   ???

When you are typing in the search bar, the top line of the drop-down usually shows where your search will be sent. If that indicates Bing, right-click the search engine you want to use and choose Set as Default Search Engine. (Example screen shot attached.)

Also, be careful where your mouse is hovering: if it moves over the icon for a different search engine, Firefox may use that one when you press Enter.
