Is it necessary to use Bing with Firefox
I thought I was downloading Mozilla Firefox but instead Bing is the home page that comes up and wondering why? I don't want to use Bing if at all possible.
No Bing isn't "necessary". Where did you download Firefox from? If you get Firefox directly from Mozilla or an approved Mozilla mirror server, you don't get extras like Bing.
