How to reset Firefox address bar default search engine

Recently, I downloaded eSnips Downloader to download few mp3s.  After installing it, esnips changed all my firefox and IE7 settings – home page,  address bar search engine, right top search engine. I tried uninstalling, it just removed right top search engine. After searching in google for a solution,  I found a simple way to reset the address bar search facility.

  1. In address bar, type about:config.
  2. Search for keyword.url
  3. Right click on it and reset.

Above steps will reset your address bar search engine to default google search engine.

Tried this and it won’t let me reset. The reset toggle is not active
