[ubuntu] Address Bar Search redirecting to Verizon

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all, I know this is a common question, and I've searched the interwebs forever for a solution. FIrstly, my internet provider is Verizon, and for whatever reason, even AFTER going through the about:config on my firefox and changed the keyword.URL to the Google search, I will still get redirected to the http://vrzc.search-help.net site when I type a search keyword into the address bar. (NOT the search bar on the right side of the browser) What's more is that when I navigate through the Verizon website to 'opt out', halfway through Firefox crashes because of certain scripts on Verizon Su (Hardware)
