How do I replace Bing search with Google in FF 3.6?

I have tried the suggestions I found on the help-site, but they don't work. When I look in the about:config and filter with keyword.url, it says that google IS the searchengine, but every time I search for something Bing shows up as searchengine. How the heck can I get Bing out of my FF 3.6?

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

  • Use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
  • Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

In Firefox 4 you can use one of these to start in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode:

  • Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
  • Hold down the Shift key while double clicking the Firefox desktop shortcut (Windows)
