By Gary Johnson - Oct 27, 2011

Users of the internet will have their favorite browsers and search engines with the majority picking a select few. Many people like to use Mozilla Firefox as their browser of choice with Google remaining the top search engine of. Now there is a Mozilla Firefox download that favors Bing available.

According to an article on PC Mag Mozilla announced last night that they had designed a version of Firefox with Bing as the default search engine. This is nothing new as last year Microsoft announced that Bing and Yahoo would be supported in Firefox 4.

Browsers can easily be adjusted to have various search engines set as the default via the option settings. The company said in a statement “Mozilla and Bing are pleased to make available Firefox with Bing, a customized version of Firefox that sets Bing as the default search engine in the search box and AwesomeBar and makes the default home page”.

It added that existing users can easily install the Bing Search for Firefox add-on if they want the search engine as well. There is a variety of different customized versions of Firefox available that are distributed around the world. Mozilla released Firefox 6 after deciding to stop using numbers for each version of its browser, before changing its mind.

Mozilla have recently been showing off its browser for tablets, where the Awesomebar still has its tabbed menu but has been moved to the left-hand side. Despite the new version of Firefox having Bing, Google still has a strangle hold on the search engine market.

    i do not care for bing-too many search results as i have vision problems and i find all the ask search engines annoying as well….as for setting your home page as google, good luck-i have firefox 40 and despite the fact that i always want google as my homepage and search engine, i still get the mozilla start page-and yes i unchecked all search engines except google…i like windows 10 but edge is slow -firefox is faster but still crashes with flash/or/and script errors-going to hang in there until the bugs are worked out…
