Have you tried to edit the preference using "about:config"?

http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config

Type "about:config", without the quotes, in the address bar. Dismiss the 
warning. Type "search", without the quotes, in the filter field. Look 
for "browser.search.defaultenginename" - it's the second line in my 
case. What soes it say? If it says "Google", then something is 
definitely screwy because it's not using the specified default. If it 
says "Bling", then right-click anywhere in that line, select "Modify" 
from the contextual menu and type "Google" into the dialog, without the 
quotes. Click "OK". Maybe restart Firefox and you *should* be ok.

Good luck!
