Bing has suddenly taken over on my Safari browser and how do I get rid of it?  I have Safari 5.1.8 on OS 10.6.8 on a MacBook

    If you want to fix your Google search to a specific Google location, or a specific search engine, I recommend that you download and install the free plug-in Glims:

     

    http://www.machangout.com/

     

    which not only does that but much more equally useful stuff! Such as enabling Safari to run full-screen, and more.)

     

    (It adds items to Safari Preferences).

     

    Not only does it already list a number of search engines and regions, but you can also add any other search engine not already listed in Glims by using the method described here:

    Just enter the name you give the search engine in the name field, and the URL for it in the Query URL field.

    If you don't want to use third-party software, you can select the Default search engine in Safari Preferences > General tab:
