Some internet services and some add-ons may be paid by Yahoo to show you that page.
Does the Yahoo page mention DNS Solutions or similar language? Does it show a Help or About link that might lead to a page where you can "opt out" of the service?
To check whether one of your extensions is the culprit, you could test in Firefox's Safe Mode. That's a standard diagnostic tool to deactivate extensions and some advanced features of Firefox. More info: Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.
You can restart Firefox in Safe Mode using either:
- "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
- Help menu > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
Not all add-ons are disabled: Flash and other plugins still run
After Firefox shuts down, a small dialog should appear. Click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Reset).
