My preferred search method is from the URL bar, because I can reach it by Ctrl+L (I dislike lifting my hands from the keyboard to use the mouse & use hotkeys as often as possible; I don't know of one to jump to the search box).
Suddenly, when I enter text there, FF searches with Bing.
How do I get it back to Google?
I have set Google, not Bing as a search engine in
settings (in fact, I deleted Bing), and I know all three of add-ons, have been using them for years and have no reason to suspect them. Not do I have any additional toolbars.
I tried what (Google) searching suggested:
- keyword.URL - I set it to
- I restarted FF, but still it searches with Bing :-(
I am virus free and ad-aware finds nothing suspicious.
I even completely uninstalled (with Revo, including registry entries and all files).
I do understand that Bing is FF's new search engine of choice - but how to I get my Google search from the URL back?
