Are you talking about them grabbing your queries to google when you type
directly in the url bar of firefox (and it gives you an eastlink search
page). I found that very annoying and somewhat unprofessional, I guess
they got a 14 yr old techie on board.

In any case there is an opt out link you can click on, I find that
took away most of the anger I had.
