In the top bar, type about:config. In the search bar on the page, type browser.search.defaultenginename. Double-click the value that appears, and enter Google in the window that appears. Click "OK" and restart Firefox. Your search engine is now Google!

Go to Programs and Features in the Control Panel and look for an entry there. Also, go to Firefox > Add-ons > Extensions and remove it if it is installed there. Source credit: http://www.pcrisk.com/removal-guides/6953-remove-fast-address-bar

Uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs if it shows up there, then run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free to clean your PC, and finally if it's still there, reset Firefox (be sure to read that entire page before doing it).

You can try this, it was useful for me: How to reset the address bar so it would work as a Google Search bar again? | Firefox Support Forum

When you enter a search term in the Firefox location bar and press Enter, Firefox will per default do a "I'm feeling lucky" Google search and redirect you to the first result that matches your search term. This behaviour can be changed by a number of add-ons. If you'd like to restore the previous default behaviour, please follow these steps:

  • Enter about:config in the Firefox location bar and press Enter.
  • You should see a warning that making changes to the Firefox configuration can be potentially harmful to Firefox's integrity. Click the I'll be careful, I promise button to continue.
  • In the Search box at the top, enter keyword as the search term. You should see a few remaining items, one of these is keyword.URL. It should be bold.
  • Right-click on the keyword.URL setting and select Reset from the dropdown menu.

yes, but as I said few posts ago that after restart I have again the same settings with that ugly malware fastadressbar – deadfish Jan 10 '13 at 22:08

I suggest you use a program called ADw Cleaner. This program is very effective at removing annoying toolbars. I have used it in the past to get rid of the annoying Babylon toolbar amongst other addons, which it did, and also in very little time.

Click on Download Now @BleepingComputer at the following web address:

I'm positive it will solve the problem.
