Ask toolbar & Firefox[Solved]
« on: November 08, 2008, 10:34:42 AM »
I uninstalled the ASK toolbar as I decided not to use it.

However when I type anything into my Firefox navigation toolbar, it still goes to Ask.com for a search.

I have not got Ask as a Firefox add-on either.

Any suggestions for removing it completely please?

type in about:config into the url (without http://)
search for keyword.URL


for google change it to http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

did this help you?

Thankyou CG, it goes to Google now.

I think it used to go to Comodo if I typed that in, now it always goes to Google.

Hi CG, the searches were set to ask, so now changed to Google.

The Keyword I have now changed from Google.com to google.co.uk as that is my home page.

No sign of Ask now and all running smoothly, so this is resolved and many thanks.
