Firefox on Mac, now Bing search has replaced Google and I can't get rid of Bing- how?

Bing has mysteriously replaced Google and pops up in new tabs, etc. I have tried to change this, but Bing pesists. I don't want it, I didn't ask for it (intentionally, anyway) - how do I get rid of it?

Hi first of all, I mean that I have a bad English.

I've had the same problem as you and it seems I've solved.

What I have done is, first uninstall an add-on called conduit firefox engine.

Second, in the address bar you have to put about: config. And find all strings that say "search.conduit"and put the option to reset.

I solved it for me the problem, I hope you serve.

Greetings

I have the same problem. Today, all of a sudden bing had replaced google, although I don't use mac but Linux OpenSUSE, the problem seems the same. I tried your solution but I don't seem to have any add-on called conduit firefox engine...... HELP
