Restore Google Search in Linux Mint 8 Firefox

I agree with others that the Linux Mint branding of the Google Search feature in Firefox (top-right corner search) is a bit annoying. To disable this branding:

1. Create a text file called google.xml and paste the following:

2. Then use root privileges to replace the existing google.xml files in the following locations with the one you just created:
  • /usr/lib/firefox-addons/searchplugins/google.xml
  • /usr/lib/firefox-addons/searchplugins/en-US/google.xml
  • /usr/share/linuxmint/common/artwork/firefox/google.xml
