I am not a techie. How do I rid myself of Bing?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
I have not requested, do not like, and do not want BING. Is there a safe and simple way to rid myself of this unwanted thing?

The Best Answer

To revert to Google as your preferred search engine, please do the following.<br><br>
* In the location bar, type '''about:config''' and hit Enter.<br><br>
* In the filter at the top, type: '''keyword.URL'''<br><br>
* Double click it and remove whatever's in there and replace it with<br><br>
The URL to add in "keyword.URL" becomes a link in this post, so right click it and choose "Copy Link Location" to copy it to the Windows clipboard. Then hit CTRL+V to paste it. Saves you having to type the whole thing.
'''To reset your home page, do the following'''.<br><br>
* Go to the site you want to set as your homepage.<br><br>
* Click the orange Firefox button and go to '''Options '''| '''Options '''| '''General''' <br><br>
* Make sure it says "''Show My Homepage''" in the first dropdown menu.<br><br>
* Click the button called "'''Use Current Pages'''" to set the homepage to the one you have on the screen.<br><br>
After you complete the above steps, install this add-on to prevent another search engine from modifying your preferences:
