Solved: How to remove inbox
I somehow installed inbox.com toolbar. I uninstalled it with "add or remove programs" but I still have inbox as a search engine in my firefox browser. I went to "tools" in firefox, "options" and "Restore to Default" but I still have the inbox search engine. I hate it and want to get rid of it, can anyone give me instructions how. Thanks so much.... (Windows XP, SP 2)

No toolbar ...just the homepage is set wrong?
If so lets do the following
within firefox ,click tools
options
the main tab at the top

now where it say home page paste in the following

http://www.google.com/

select ok at the bottom
Open a new window and see if it is fixed

I reset my home page already. When I type in the search bar, the search is done by inbox.com. I would like google back. Can you tell me how to get rid of inbox? Thank you.

Sorry for being this dumb, but I don't know what "little arrow" you want me to click.
