I am trying to set the value for keyword.url in the about:config page of mozilla firefox as https://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=.

But it is getting overidden quickly by the anti-virus that is installed on the machine to http://isearch.avg.com/search?.....

Can anyone help me out here, to setup the default search engine in firefox to google ?


Uninstall AVG, or disable AVG's SafeSearch feature

  • I was looking for options in AVG settings. The problem was, it has installed a addon in firefox, disabling which resolved the issue. Anyways thanks :) – mtk Jun 22 '12 at 21:16

Disable the AVG Firefox add-on. The default search engine would no more get over-written.
