Warren: continued frustration. Result was "website cannot be found". (sigh!)
Thanks anyway! Just not my day. My vision is poorer than usual today.

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.
