Default Search Engine Always Flipped Back to Google

  • Countless times I have set the default search engine to use something else instead of Google.

    But whenever I type in something for a search, it goes to Google and I see that in Opera my default has been changed to Google.

    What's up with that? Is Opera in league with Google, or is Google hacking into Opera and changing the default.

    I never have this problem in Firefox. I'd like to make Opera my default browser but I will not do so unless I can avoid using Google for searches.

  • @m-n-g I think it is only work in address bar not in Speed Dial bar. So, type in address bar
