For those of you who have upgraded to Firefox 12...
You may have noticed that when you do a search in the Google Firefox homepage that the next page that appears is showing an AVG Secure Search logo in the upper left corner and such. :mad:

This is damned annoying and after about a 20 minute search I finally found a fix for it. Remember that EVEN IF YOU DO NOT INSTALL AVG or any of it's toolbar components, this 'secure search' junk still shows up. :eek:

Here's the fix; copy this URL with the "https" prefix: https://www.google.com/webhp?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 then go to that URL. Make it your home page and now no more issues when do a search from this home page. :)

I hope this helps!
