always to search in Bing rather than Google. I did not (knowingly) initiate any such change. I'd like to restore the search to Google, but can't. I've gone into Safari > Preferences > General, and changed the default search engine and default home page to Google.com, which is my preferred. BTW: Macbook Pro. OS X 10.7.5, Safari 6.0.5 One further note (and I suspect somewhere in here may be the culprit), just before the aforementioned and inexplicable switch to Bing in my search bar, I downloaded a free (brushstroke) font from a site now lost to me. I've searched both history and my downloads and cannot find the website or the download. Odd. Also about the same time this happened, I downloaded Firefox. Oddly (to me), Firefox has shown up corrupt, and cannot be opened or removed. When I try to remove it, I get this message: "The operation cant be completed because the item 'Firefox' is in use." A glance at Force Quit shows no Mozilla or Firefox app open. When I try to open it, I get this message: "You cannot open the application because it may be damaged or incomplete." So I can't remove it because it is open; I can't open it because it is corrupt, and it doesn't appear in Force Quit. I am not sure if either the Firefox or the font downloads are related to my Bing issue. Any suggestions how I can stop this automatic use of Bing as search engine via my Safari search bar? Or, how to fix/remove Firefox? Thanks in advance! And if I posted this in the wrong place, please point out my error and redirect me. Thx.
