Firefox, version 38.0.1

Windows 7 Home Premium


I have google set as the default search engine, yet everytime I launch Firefox, there is the following at the top of the window:


"Get to google faster. Switch your default search engine to google."


How do I shut off this stupid message since I already have google as the default search engine?

Just saw someone in another forum having the same issue, and they resolved it by "accepting the cookie request" at the bottom of the screen. Have you noticed if such a thing is appearing for you?


Chrome changed their default search engine to Yahoo a little while ago, so if you haven't checked the settings for a while, might be worth double checking there also
