Why do I keep getting switched back to Bing? I do not like Bing.

If there is an upgrade or even minor update to Firefox, I end up with Bing as the search-engine again and, frankly, I loathe Bing. Is there any way I can stop this? I reset it to default to DuckDuckGo, time and again, but as soon as the default matters, it fails to activate itself. Thanks for any help!

It sounds like you have an extension or other third-party software that is switching you to Bing.

Can you please go to about:support, go to the section labeled "Extensions" and copy what's there?

After doing that, download malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.com) and run a full scan, removing anything it finds.

I downloaded malwarebytes.com and ran it. It worked for safari and chrome but not for firefox. Firefox is my default browser but I'm about to give it up because I've spent hours trying to get rid of this virus and NOTHING WORKS!
