well at some point i doanloaded something that took the liberty to install a ****ty ask jeeves toolbar, i uninstalled it, however when i go to just type in the name of a website (eg. ultimate guitar instead of ultimate-guitar.com) it brings up a ask jeeves google seach, i liked how it used to use google's "im feeling lucky" to get you to the page. so how do i change that back?

something in about:config probably right?

To the left of the search box, there's the search engine icon and a little arrow next to that. Click the arrow.

which version of firefox do you have? in the newest one, if you have the search bar in the top right, you can click on the search engine icon just to the left of the field where you can type, and pick google or go to "customize"

Just click the arrow next to the searchbar and a drop down menu will appear. Click google.

I'm guessing you'd click View,Toolbars, and then whatever it says about an Ask Jeeves Toolbar.
