Google has been my default search engine from way back. I, typically, do not replace the two tabs which are my home group, and select File|New Tab. In FF3.6.17 the new Tab is blank, but I see in 4.0.1 that the New Tab has the Bing search, although I removed Bing from my list of search engines. Interestingly, if I do my search in the Search box, the one next to the address box, the search will proceed in Google. Is this New Tab a new feature of 4.x? If I want to remove the Bing feature, and click on remove on the upper left, I get This:
Remove the Search Box on New Tabs
This handy search opens each time you open a new browser tab. You can always remove it using your Community Toolbar's Toolbar Options window.
Are you sure you want to remove this option now?
Has anyone seen this? I have nothing against Bing, but I don't like this "feature".
