I have just returned from overseas...been away for a month +......Firefox have now subjected us to/are using Google Custom Search as the default google search engine. (pita)


Is this annoying the crap out of anyone else on here ?


If so.....


Open Firefox's menu...three horizontal bars located just below the x in the top right hand corner of your firefox browsing page..


Click on Options


Then on Search (from the row across the top of the options window)


Then....Untick Google....(you can leave any others you feel you may use)


Then Click on Add more Search Engines...this should open THIS PAGE..


Select Google Default

and Install it.


Google default will be placed in the list of available search engines......open options,search etc etc again and ensure that Google Default is Ticked.


Now your searches will display with the web   images   video   maps   shopping  books   search tools    etc options included.
