Research on Yahoo

Back in 4.0, I used to be able to type search terms into the address bar and do a search on Google. Since 5.0, however, I was responsible for Yahoo. I scanned my computer from viruses and spyware, and it's clean; I am sure that the problem is not related to one of my modules, since only a few work with 6.0 and it happened when I updated with 5.0. Now I know how manually set Google as my search engine, but what I really should be back is the ability to type something like 'wiki paris' and go directly to the Wikipedia page on Paris, or 'imdb sophia myles' and be sent to the page IMDB of Sophia Myles. Put the URL about: config doesn't let me do that. Is it possible to fix this?


Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions of the origin of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > appearance/themes).

You can open the topic: config page through the address bar and do a search for yahoo via the filter at the top of the about: config page.

You can reset all the prefs yahoo via the context menu to their default values if they appear "BOLD" (user set).

  • All my research are back in the search engine Yahoo finder without danger.

    All my research are back in the search engine Yahoo finder without danger.  I ran the fixes suggested in other threads with the same problem, but I still get Yahoo search results.  Google is my selected search engine.

    I noticed that the problem happens when I type my research in space on the search page itself.  This search page looks a bit like a page from Google, but there no links etc than Google does.  Instead, he has "SearchTech" downstairs (with Contact, privacy and terms). If I type my research topic in the menu bar the results come back in Google.

    I confirmed that my favorite search engine is Google. Previously I ran LaunchAgents and LaunchDaemons and removed three files to those who had been loaded on my computer today.  I checked the extensions are that there is not.

  • 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 One of the problems I was with was that all my default search in the search bar engine have been replaced by three (which no do I had previous) food, IMdB, and SiteAdvisor.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:

Similarly, new tabs and the home page back to Yahoo after the reopening. This is a new laptop HP with Windows 10 and I just downloaded Firefox. I spent a lot of time trying to solve this problem and about to give up and to switch browsers. I bet that Chrome will allow me to use Google.

    Generally, changes in parameters are retained between reboots. If you change other preferences such as your home page, Firefox manages to retain those between reboots?

    We have an article of general support on issues that may lead to changes to get lost between sessions: How to fix preferences that will not save.

    Two other thoughts:

    (1) some software utility/security/life private changes the folder of Firefox settings between sessions. This includes Advanced SystemCare and various programs 'homepage protection' or "browsing protection" feature. If you have any software with a similar feature, disable it until everything is set as you want and stable.

    (2) you might check all the extensions that could possibly change the settings when you start Firefox. You can do this on the page modules. Either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, take a critical look on the list on the right side. On a new installation, it is usually empty, unless Firefox has detected the extensions that already exist on your system. Something unexpected?

    Thank you for sharing the details of your browser, that appear to the right of your message in Question details > Details of the system more. If you check your extensions, you can see that you're infected with "Searchme" and you must delete it.

    Open the page modules using either:

    • CMD + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then on the side right, remove or disable Searchme. Keep in mind that all extensions are optional and none is included with Firefox when you get it first.

    Often, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    Is that what helps you regain control?

    This could be the tip of an iceberg of malware. When you install free software, you often get the options grouped under silence. I don't know the best way to 'clean up' a Mac of these elements, but you may want to consider the issue.

    Hi TheJohnParr, to your Thunderbird (e-mail client) problem, I you suggest have another question for this, and we could concentrate on your Firefox search engine problem in this thread.

    You can view, disable and usually remove extensions on page modules. Either:

    • Command + shift + a
    • Tools menu > Modules

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, when in doubt, turn off.

    Typically, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    Any improvement?

    Moreover, the address bar works a bit different in the search boxes (homepage search box or the search box toolbar). If you enter a single word without spaces in the address bar (for example, hobbit or then Firefox should first check with your provider if there is a known server name. Sometimes, these queries are diverted by your service provider to show you search results. By comparing your search in the address bar and the search box, you can see if it comes to the question.

  • How to change default browser from Yahoo to Google on Android?

    I wonder how to change the default browser on Firefox from Yahoo to Google. I personally prefer Google for research and who want by default if it is possible

    Hi devinat1, if the battery-dot-3 icon does not appear, it means that Firefox has detected a button menu 'material' on your device. In general it's near the home button below the screen. If you can't find a menu button down there, do you want to talk about device you have? Perhaps one of the volunteer support can figure out what is happening.

  • Download Yahoo out of my Firefox

    I admit it. I downloaded a free program and held hostage by Yahoo.

    I tried a lot of typical solutions found on the web, and I think that the doers of evil with Yahoo have also read and wrote a better more obnoxious malware.

    I downloaded the new Firefox and installed, I tried to update and so on. I re-set my browser by default and what happens is I get two tabs at startup, a flaw and it is the silt of Yahoo.

    Please help me get this disease out of my browser!

    Thanks for the attempt to help.

    So here's what solved 'accidentally '. I wrote this at the bottom and then forgot to save when I close my computer off last night, so I'll do my best to remember.

    This problem persisted until I clicked on a SECURED link someone sent me in an email. I clicked it and it went straight to the page and this page in a new window opens.

    I thought, "eh, it was strange." Better, I remember now, instinctively, I opened a NEW browser window, and there is still... this disease of Yahoo and my open home page tabs simultaneously.

    I went back to the window that has opened in the page web of the link, is go to options, changed my home page back to the default in Firefox, and then click value on another TAB and it opens up Firefox by default.

    I then selected Duck Duck Go in the search engine drop-down in the research cell (same tab), then returned to the options and changed the default home page for "use current pages".

    Closed from the other window with two legs that open with Yahoo and Firefox home pages and then closed the window with two legs of the link I clicked and the tab I used to set my home page... then opens a new browser window and BAM... back to normal.

    It's the best of my recollection.


    Now when I followed your instructions, it has the right URL. This gets fixed as I wrote above, until I could try your solution.

    Thank you for your help.

    For anyone who has found this solved the problem because they had the same problem. Now, you know that the real solution is to take it slow when you download a free program. In fact, be careful when you download and install programs even you pay because even those who understand often insidious modules of the sponsors who want to take control of your computer or at least your browser.

    When we are looking for a solution, we are often in a hurry to get this solution of software free to work very quickly, and we tend to click all the "Thanks" and "Okay" very fast... we just want the danged program and the rest to shut up and make the road.

    BUT... buried in a large number of them is this toxic junk preying on your desire for a cheap or free 'something' and they rely on the fact that most of the people will live with all malicious software has been installed as the computer still works well. But, you are now being watched by more people than you were before if you let this junk out there.

    Patience and make attention is the preventive solution. ALWAYS be wary of any programs that install. Even those you pay maybe junk you don't want and could have deselected you just slowed down and thought about all the steps of the installation procedure.

    Thanks to the Firefox community.
