Removing Linux Mint’s Google page hack from Firefox

I know this is a revenue stream for Linux Mint, but I just can’t do without the “more options” on the normal Google search results page that allow me to¬† limit searches to results from the last year, or the last 24 hours, etc. So, thanks to some folks at the Mint forum, here’s a quick way to restore normal Google pages:

1) go to this page and click “add to Firefox”

2) go to Google’s home page and Right-Click in the search box. Select “add to search bar.”

3) go to “manage search engines” (click the drop down arrow on the search bar)

4) remove the old Google search engine, and move the new one to the top.

Clem, if you can come up with a way to keep all of Google’s functionality on the results pages, I’d be more than happy to keep the Mint hacks in place.
