    I am posting this because I have not seen this solution here:eek:. If you are getting Inbox.com searches when you type a non-url in your address bar instead of a Google search even after deinstalling Inbox and removing it from your add-in's and search engines, then try this:

    Type :" About:config "in your Firefox address bar, you will get a cute warning about voiding the warranty, accept it.

    Now look for "keyword.URL" in the left column and left-click on

    Highlight the string entry and hit delete

    Close the Tab and your problem should be fixed.:cool:
