Default how do i get rid of blekko search engine?

When I clear my URL entry box in firefox, I enter say anything, and it used to immediately direct me to google search results for that word searched. Now it redirects me to Blekko. How do I get that back to google?



The far right box is still google, but the main url field takes me to blekko now.

I think the meaning of random letters is something like "ddhjlkf"
