I am using firefox and it apears that Bing has hijacked my search engine.  Even if I go back and change it through the options it continues to open a new web page as Bing.  I looked in my program files and I do not see Bong or Google anywhere. I have ran malwarebytes and a spybot and hijack this and can not seem to remove it.  I can not even remove it from the list.  The remove button is grayed out.  Any information is appreciated!

You might want to refresh your Firefox settings. A few months ago, Firefox changed their default search to Yahoo which uses Bing.
