    Help! How do I permanently remove bing search engine on my computer? I have tried searching for advice on this and nothing helps: Wikihow says to insert an html (well I can't even identify that) someone else said to locate bing in search engine add-ons (it doesn't even show up) and someone else said to type about.config in the filter bar - where is it?? Nothing is showing up as it should according to these gurus.

    I am using Firefox. If I use IE bing stays hidden but I like Firefox and don't want this blasted thing on my computer. Any ideas - thanks in advance. Please use nice simple instructions.

    Guess what? If you use Firefox, here is a nice simple solution that does not remove bookmarks or files. Open Firefox, select help, troubleshooting issues, refresh Firefox. Select refresh only what I want, Firefox will reset to default. When done close window and reset home page. Easy as. FYI a file named Old Firefox Stuff will appear on your desktop in case you need anything from it. Many thanks to Chris for this info.
