Have you tried to edit the preference using "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.
