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).
- Makes no changes on the start safe mode window.
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).
(very) recently I started to find a (very) little research google, yahoo and bing that I did NOT do (me) in my story. Something else odd (to me): they seem to disappear from history as weel, without allow me to delete them.
How is this possible and what can / should do to avoid this problem does not happen? Thanks for the tips!
Found! Went through all the tips troubleshooting basic and that the last extension (of course), I checked was the cause: TrackMeNot - "it works in Firefox as a low priority process background that periodically issues requests from random search to popular search engines, for example, AOL, Yahoo!, Google, and Bing. It hides the tracks of real users search in a cloud of 'ghost' queries, greatly increasing the difficulty of aggregate that data into accurate or identifying user profiles. »
My apologies for the noise!
As I'll type in www.ya and Firefox will drop Yahoo E-mail site like me or my latest research on Yahoo.
Firefox/tools > Options > privacy > address bar: when you use the location bar, suggest: nothing
I created a strategy of blocking the user on the NSA4300 policy & compliance - past-filter - add a new filter
If the conditions = all these conditions are met
Match = contains, value of research: [email protected]
Action = bounce to sender
policy works fine but the problem is sending us e-mails en masse in the identification of email in bulk if the id of blocking [email protected] is added to all messages are rejected because of policy message appearing...
How to solve the problem... .Please orientation will be highly appreciated.
This is normal. We cannot change this behavior by adjusting the filter sort.
You can ask your representative to sales for a feature request provide a filter option where it blocks emails goes only to that recipient other beneficiaries of such bulk e-mail must be sent.
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.
Your search engine has been redirected due to malware or the downloading.
You can use the free Malwarebytes utility to remove it.

Then click on download.
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
No matter what I do, the search engines in the toolbar by default return Yahoo! Remove all but Google does not help. When you restart Firefox Yahoo is the default value. 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?
When I search something on Google finds them, I open the pages requested. it flashes the right page then Yahoo stops and takes me to a page of security
Im not a subscriber of yahoo. I have never used the site. I think that his atrocious.
How can I fix this to get my Google to work right
Im running firefox 43.ob2

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.
I deleted my search options yahoo and it is no longer present under choice but still is the default value. How can I remove keyword.url
Try to create a new profile.
I installed software and there's probilly the plugin from yahoo. But this plugin, I can't find it on my computer.
Use a type of compressed as PNG or JPG image to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed the maximum file size (1 MB).
The URL in Firefox address bar default search functionality if the browser does not recognize as a valid http, https, ftp etc URL entry.
Until recently, he used Google. He is now using Yahoo search, and I want to switch back.
Efforts to use the backups Time Machine of my library files have not solved the problem.
After reading the article you mentioned, I looked at the topic: the configuration file. There were so many things wrong that I decided to download another copy of Firefox. The new copy of firefox has solved my problem.
This happening on my macbook pro and my I mack. Also on my PC but only on firefox.
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.
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 mozilla.org) 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.
Can someone tell me if 'Search Tech 1.0' is an extension of Apple's Safari? What is adware any that was installed?
I can't find using Extensions Safari/Safari. This looks like an extension that will be hi-jack your engine of choice, research and direct them to another search engine. It is perhaps the one that directs you to the Yahoo search engine.
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.
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.
