    Could you have tripped, unbeknownst, over something like this at some point?

    Nope. As I said, I haven't installed any new software in... a very long time.

    Firefox does not usually use extensions provided by Google. If you are not syncing it to an email address try to do that. Remove Bing as a search provider first and then sync it.

    How do I set up Sync on my computer? | Firefox Help
    It's an add-on: Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. It plays encrypted video online.

    In the FF address bar type about:support then press Enter. copy the results here.

    Also type about:config then press Enter. Type bing in the search box and see what shows up.

    Also set FF to show Menu Bar then look at Tools > Add Ons

    Scroll down to each add on in the list and check for configurable options. Have a look at all options for each add on.

    There were a couple of entries for Bing in there, I changed them all to Google. We'll see if that helps.

    And, even with the sync, even with changing those values, it still happens.

    Do that again but do not change anything.

    Also try the Mycroft Plugins. Choose the google search engine that you require and add it using the option to set as default.

    Now, absolutely nothing shows up when searching for Bing, but Bing still gets activated.
