i will presume you meant firefox 9 and not fedora 9.
that is something to take up with mozilla developers. i do not believe
that either fedora or mozilla put the 'search.conduit.com' crap in your
i would guess that it is from you having picked it up somewhere when you
where at a site that runs searches thru 'search.conduit.com'.
i am making a swag here, but i will say that you need to go thru your
preferences for these settings;

because of possible differences between my release and yours, look thru
*all* your settings to insure that there are not any more that allow
changes being made.

so i will presume that it covers thru firefox 8.x and firefox 9. please
do not ask why the copyright notice does not say 2011.

my fedora is at f14. at this time i am running sl 5.5 where firefox is;
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20111108
Red Hat/3.6-3.el5_7 Firefox/3.6.24
which does have 'browser.startup.homepage'.
with it missing from you 9.x release, i would presume that firefox devs
where too busy chasing their tales to get release version ahead of google
