I lost my default ie Yahoo game in the bar all what I have research are food IMdB and SiteAdvisor (ver. 18.0.2) search engines

I had my windows crash, but was able to restore with built-in software. One of the problems I was with was that all my default search in the search bar engine have been replaced by three (which no do I had previous) food, IMdB, and SiteAdvisor. When I checked your forum there is a similar question to mine, but I was unable to understand the answer. I already upgraded 16 ff. something to 18.0.2, hoping that this would solve the problem, but it didn't. I don't want to uninstall and reinstall as I fear, that I lose all my favorites etc. I can do my research on the web pages of Google and Yahoo, but the search bar has been should be much more. Thanks for any help


You always see all search engines xml files in the searchplugins folder in the Firefox program folder?

  • (32-bit Windows) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\
  • (Windows 64 bit) C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox\

If the default search engines are missing it then you need to reinstall Firefox.

You can try to delete the search.json file and a possible search.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.

You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

  • Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file
