Re: how to change firefox start page search engine?or at least reset it to google

If you are talking about the search engine on the default about:home homepage, I don't thing I have seen anyone else post about it having been changed to Babylon - but that's not to say it couldn't happen.


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);}

Hi Ad-jet,

Have you looked at our Home page and Search troubleshooting section? There is actually a few sections in there specifically about Babylon.

Hopefully this helps!
