Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I open FireFox browser in Ubuntu, I am presented with a streamlined Google search interface . Oftentimes, I am looking for images, so i have to 'Google' Google, in order to get the the main Google search site ( which has links to 'images - maps - youtube - etc... in the header ). It's not a huge problem, but when searching for images for clients dozens of times a day it gets a bit frustrating having that extra step. Does anyone know how to display your home page in FireFox as the default Google Page, as opposed to the streamlined Ubuntu Version? Thanks for the help.
