Reason For Closing:

Additional Information: 

From chrispop99's post (the lazy bum): "The released version still has a problem with the search engine preference. It stubbornly reverts to Startpage after changing it to Google. Changing to any of the other options 'sticks' OK. If you change it to Bing, for example, re-launching it leaves it as Bing. If you then change it to Google, upon re-launch it will revert to Startpage. (The homepage will survive a change.)
I checked that the text in /etc/iceweasel/pref/iceweasel.js has been changed in accordance with the suggested fix in post no: 342291. It is the same as that post. The issue affects both pae and non-pae versions, both installed and running live."


Fixed in MX-14.2
