    I had the same problem. Here is what to do:

    In the address bar, type "about:config". Continue past the warning. In the search bar, type "". Under the value column, right click on an entry that contains "avg" and click "Reset" (I only found two or three). Then, search "avg" in the search bar, and all of the entries (I had two to reset).

    Try a search using your address bar, and you should now be searching through Google.
