As the creative name implies, it is Firefox but with Bing running behind the scenes.

It also changes the default homepage to Obviously, you can still change your homepage per usual, but the search bars will stay with Bing.


If you hate Bing, you can relax, because the default version of Firefox will still work with Google as the default search engine. This is a special version of the browser that will only be appreciated by fans of Bing. For the rest of you, just keep doing what you are doing, and you will not see any change to your beloved search engine in Firefox.

If you want to download Firefox with Bing simply head over to and download the browser. If you already have Firefox, then this will simply add the plugins to your current browser, so you do not have to download the browser from scratch again.
