How can I get rid of seach.yahoo.com every time I open a new tab?

Posted

Every time I open a new tab, or reopen Firefox, I get search.yahoo.com. I want to get rid of it or I want to stop using Firefox.

Hi,

To remove from newtab page:

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise! to continue to the about:config page.
  3. Type browser.newtab.url in the search box to find it on the list.
  4. Double-click on browser.newtab.url and type in about:newtab in the window that pops up.

Restart Firefox and open a new tab to make sure the change was made. If there is any issues with plugins please also see: Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems
