How do I remove Bing from my toolbar at the top of the page. I have already tried both of the suggestions given in the help section; I could not find Bing in my control panel "add and remove programs," and there was one other suggestion which I also tried

locking due the age of this thread - asked and answered

I have tried all of the suggestions given by FF in order to remove Bing from my computer but nothing seems to work. I would appreciate some advise. For instance when I go to add and remove programs I can't even find Bing listed. Looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I first installed Firefox

Sorry, I was trying to Bold the words "tools" "Options" "General". and didn't use the B correctly. Just delete the words Text above.

Dear Kimberly:

I tried what you suggested even before I asked the original question. My problem is that I do not see a program in my control panel listing of programs marked "Bing." I see a lot of Microsoft programs but they don't say Bing and I do not think is wise of me to start deleting microsoft program when I am running XP.

Can to tell me exactly which file to delete in order to ride of Bing once and for all. Thank you Kimberly.

Regards, Sandy

See this - it might be under the Search Helper Extension name in the Addons Manager. https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Removing+the+Search+Helper+Extension+and+Bing+Bar

In Add or Remove Programs, do you see something like "Search Toolbar" or "Search Bar 1.#.#"? That is probably it. Scroll down to SEO Expert's answer here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100130021137AAYv4RT

I opened up and the Bing screen was on my Firefox. After searching several places I found a very simple solution: texttoolstext to textOptionstext choose textGeneraltext. Under "homepage" click "Restore to Default". Save and I had my Google search back!

In the add or remove programs choose to delete the MSN toolbar. If you are using MSN for your email then I don't know how that will effect that but it takes the toolbar off of the mozilla page.

This was driving me nut for a while, but the solution is simple. Right click on Tools, then uncheck the Tool Bar. And that gets rid of Bing!!!!
