How to fix… Firefox Bing. Fix the search feature in the “url bar” aka “location bar”…

June 8, 2009 by · 11 Comments 

These directions are for firefox 3.0.10 but should probably work for other versions.

 

If your firefox url location bar suddenly gives results from Bing instead of Google and you want Google back again, here is how you can switch it back:

 

typeabout:config” in the url bar… clickI’ll be careful, I promise!” in the “This might void your warranty” notification box.

typekeyword” in the “filter bar”

you should now have a few choices—right click on “keyword.URL” … clickmodify” … paste the following text into the box …

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

 

** We have now tested these directions which in theory looked like they would work, and they worked great **.

 

/ p.s.  try this is at your own risk! /

/ if some problem happens, don’t call us–but we did it ourselves and only had good results/

 

Good luck.
