    I would like to get rid of the Bing searchbar which seemed to popup a while ago.
    I have tried various methods with no success.

    Thanks
    Jack

    Sorry regarding screenshot, I have tried without success to do one.
    I have tried using Prt Scr to copy it but been unable to paste it.

    I got annoyed with that also. This is what finally worked for me.
    Click the coloured icon in the Bing search bar.
    Click one of the other search offers there. (Google is the obvious choice)
    Click again and select "manage search engines"
    Delete Bing.

    No joy for me, I clicked the orange icon in the Bing search bar and this is what came up (excuse the size)
    No mention of google

    Success at last.
    It was that simple I went into Tools>Add-ons
    There was the MSN Toolbar listed, clicked Disable
    Restarted Firefox no Bing!
