In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter . The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise! , to continue to the about:config page. Search for the preference keyword.url. Right-click on it, and select Reset.

Der Chris,

Thanks a lot! I went into that last evening, searching for "Yahoo"anything. Didn't find anything I could see to "fix".

I'll try your suggestion this evening...

Thanks again, Lynn

Your current setting for keyword.URL is

WooooHoooo! Thanks! It worked!

I am having the same problem when I type a search from the location bar.

I have gone to about.config and reset the search and rebooted. It still doesn't help.

Any suggstions.

What is your setting for the pref keyword.URL ?

You might want to be sure that these problems are actually taking you to Yahoo -- the problem was around last year (and has come back in a more problematic for this summer), and the search redirection was actually going to a site called wwww0.notfounditem.net (or maybe wwwwo...). It has ha Yahoo logo on it, but look at the actual address in the location bar.

This appears to be caused by some form of malware. This year's version is trickier because on my girlfriend's computer, even "about:config" redirects to the bogus search site, so you can't use the methods described above to fix the problem.

If anyone is having this issue, I had to change more than just the keyword.url. Here are the steps I took:

Open Firefox and type about:config

Then I changed:

browser.search.defaultenginename to google

browser.search.defaulturl to www.google.com

keyword.url right click {reset} or set = http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

Then I restarted Firefox.

Consider this another complaint against Yahoo's unclear messaging. I do use Yahoo for some things and I thought perhaps they were going to improve interoperability between services, I guess Microsoft is rubbing off on them.

Mozilla - If my elderly parents encountered this problem, they would not be able to solve it without assistance. Please consider adding this to tools -> options. I love them, but I don't need the exercise in patience

Thanks to Chris and the solution chosen by Anonymoususer I have reset to Google in the prescribed manner. I should add that I'm convinced that the problem was a direct result of installing Panda - which was a pain to uninstall - and left a Panda redirect to Yahoo. Now if anyone can tell me why my Awesome bar does not show logos on known sites (daily national U.K. newspapers etc) I'd be v. grateful. Thanks. Penangry.
