How can I make Google my search engine on the Mozilla homepage?

Somehow the search engine of Google om my Mozilla homepage changed to Yahoo (not in the search bar, there it is still Google). How can I get it back on Google?

Change the about:home search engine back to Google.

With the about:home homepage showing:
Firefox button > Web Developer -> Scratchpad -
copy and paste this script into Scratchpad > then hit Execute > Run

 
javascript:{localStorage["search-engine"]="{\"name\":\"Google\",\"searchUrl\":\"http://www.google.com/search?q=_searchTerms_&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-USSmiley Surprisedfficial&cli...\"}";void(0);}

This makes Google my starting page. But that is not what I want. I want to keep the Mozilla startingpage, but with the Google searchengine (like it normally is).
