Here we are going to discuss the steps to be taken in order to make/ revert Google as the default Search Engine when we automatically search for a word or a search query on the address bar.
Google is the most popular search engine all across the world. Most people prefer Google search over other search engine alternative there on the web. This is all because of Google’s capability to provide relevant and correct information within fraction of seconds. All modern browsers nowadays provide their users fast way to search for a search term query by inputting it directly into the address bar of their browser window.
By default, Google is the default search engine for Firefox, but the installation of various software may lead to the change in the search behaviour of the Browser address bar. This may be both time consuming as well as irritating for the user. I myself faced the same situation a couple of times and faced a lot of inconvenience due to it. So, I thought of writing down a short yet clear process as to How can we make or revert back Google Search as our Default search provider for Firefox Browser.
