set default search engine
Each time I launch Firefox I have to reset my search engine. I would like to permanently set my search engine to Google. Via config settings?
Have you set up default search engine to Google from about:preferences#search ? If not, then select it from Search Engine settings .
You can do another thing : goto about:config from url and make the preference as false . browser.search.showOneOffButtons
Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac:<Command>)<Shift> A)
In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Remove ******* Anything. Now do the same in the computers Programs Folder.
Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.
To what search engine does it change when you (re)start Firefox?
If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:
