reset firefox default URL search to google

i was bugged by annoying
search.conduit.com after installing the Live India Toolbar , don't ever install it , it leaves a lot of bugs / spywares in ur system , even after uninstalling.

after removing it , when i typed anything in the address bar , instead of google it was looked in search.conduit.com and this was really shit , even i blocked the site using Block-Site add on it was there. then i fould something really interesting for first time users of configuration file ..of firefox

Type about:config in the address bar and hit enter :)

it asks you to keep the promise :) LOL . do keep that .
then search for

keyword.URL and right click on it and reset it :)

u are home :) happy surfing .Default URL serch is now google ...

Thank you so much! I'd been advised by emusic, who'd kicked off this conduit thing, but could not understand their kind and repeated instructions.
