    delete bing in firefox

    I want to delete bing in firefox. I have the firefox toolbar and google homepage when I open firefox. However, when I open a new tab the bing toolbar and bing homepage shows up. I cannot find bing in the add-ons or extensions, or in programs to uninstall. I have tried about:config but cannot find either bing or keyURL in the preferences. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Thank you Frozwire. I tried the the things in the link you gave. Still did not get rid of bing in firefox. However, it did lead me to find an article that had a solution that worked. I went back into control panel>uninstall programs and a program listed as "search version 1.2". I uninstalled it and now bing toolbar and homepage are gone from firefox and do not reappear when I open new tabs. Very sneaky of microsoft to disguise bing with a different name.
