You can use as band aid: On options go to Search then select ADD search bar on tool bar ( second option) Go to Yahoo.com then on the search box that was just added it will have a + sign on the magnifying glass, select add yahoo as search engine. So far its how i have been working around the issue. If you remove it it wont appear even if you hit restore engines tho, so you have to repeat if you remove it by mistake.

Based on the above I'll mark this question solved. For others reading, see the instructions I posted in my March 11, 2018 reply for details.

Thank you for checking that. Somehow the built-in yahoo.xml search plugin file is getting overlooked when the file is updated or rebuilt. Only one out the eight. ??!!

I wasn't able to replicate the problem (by deleting search.json.mozlz4) so it still seems to be occurring selectively.

We only know about Yahoo's mysterious disappearance because users, who have/had Yahoo as their (default) search engine, reported it here.

I would never have known that it did the disappearance act on me too, as I never use(d) Yahoo, and I wonder how many other users will no longer have Yahoo listed in Options => Search => One-Click Search Engines.

The cases we know about now, might just be the tip of the iceberg ......

This has to do with Firefox requesting an update file via the browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url pref. The current response doesn't include Yahoo as a visible search engine, so it is hidden.

Result:

{"cohort": "nov17-2", "interval": 86400, "settings": {"searchDefault": "Google", "visibleDefaultEngines": ["amazondotcom", "bing", "ebay", "google-2018", "twitter", "wikipedia", "ddg"]}}
{"cohort": "nov17-1", "interval": 86400, "settings": {"visibleDefaultEngines": ["amazondotcom", "bing", "ebay-gb", "google", "twitter", "wikipedia", "ddg"]}}

You can set browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url to this data URI to include Yahoo as a visible search engine. You need to remove sessionstore.jsonlz4 in the profile folder with Firefox closed.

data:application/json,{"interval": 0, "settings": {"searchDefault": "Google", "visibleDefaultEngines": ["amazondotcom", "bing", "google", "twitter", "wikipedia", "ddg", "yahoo"]}}

EDIT: You probably need to set browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults = false as well.

Why would they hide yahoo though? and do i copy paste that last string into the file you mention or just delete the old one? Step by step instructions are always good


Also under firefox updates there is a select box automatically update search engines, its good once you get yahoo set to unselect that box.

Does that mean that if you turn off the "geo-specific" feature, you will get the full list again, the next time you regenerate search.json.mozlz4?

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste geos and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults preference to switch the value from true to false

Then the steps to have Firefox generate a new search.json.mozlz4 file are here: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1208139?page=1#answer-1085333
