Hi, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you to solve your issue today.

Hi, so where are you seeing bing that you do not want it. Is it within firefox that you wish to change it?

Carl Poersch :

in the search box in the upper right and on the home page or both?

Customer :

I don't want to see bing anywhere

Carl Poersch :

Thats fine, I am just asking where you see it now so that we can get rid of it. Are you in firefox right now? If so, you will see a tiny magnifying glass icon in the top right of firefox. Do you see that?

Customer :

yes but it also says bing not firefox

OK, I think you hit the ACCEPT button too early and it ended our chat. Lets see if we can get you back into chat so I can tell you how to make the changes to get rid of bing
OK, I am not seeing the option to chat since you clicked the Accept and Exit button.

Right beside the magnifying glass icon in the top right of the screen, you will see the word Bing in light gray, then to the left of that there is a tiny triangle you can click.

Click on that triangle and a list should pop down of search engines other than bing. Click on the one that you want.

To change your startup page also called home page, do the following:

Click on Tools in the top row of Firefox,
Click on Options,
Click on the "Main" button
Then highlight and type over the text beside "Home Page" For example, type www.google.com if you want google as your home page.
