I have changed the Firefox default keyword.url in about:config to http://www.google.com/search?btnG=Google+Search&q= but when I search from the address bar it goes to Bing.

How is this possible? I don't even have any occurence of Bing in the about:config.

What is browser.search.defaultenginename set to? –  ChrisF Jun 29 '10 at 12:53
    
Do you have any add ons installed which could be the culprit? –  brandstaetter Jun 29 '10 at 12:57
