>> Look in your default search engine settings.  Right click the address bar and choose edit search engines.  Pay close attention  to the url of your default search engine.  It is directing you to a page that is forcing this tool to take over the search so everything goes through them.  Delete it.  It seemed to be tricky for me to delete it, but I was persistent and it did the trick.

Add the search box to the address bar, and use it instead of the google
homepage.
