Firefox v40.0.3, Win7 64-bit SP1 and up-to-date.

Somehow, probably due to a recent software install, Yahoo has hijacked my new tab behavior and I can no longer get to the New Tab tiles that I could do before when I create a new tab or new window (ctrl-t or ctrl-n). I have:

1. Changed the about:config browser.newtab.url entry to about:newtab; it was www.yahoo.com. 2. Removed Yahoo from the list of search engines and ensured that Google was at the top. 3. Followed the process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page but I cannot find the cog icon on the New Tab page since I can't get a tab with the tiles (i.e. I can find the New Tab controls referred to on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hide-or-display-sites-new-tab-page).

I would really like my tiles back.

When browsing, a Yahoo popup often appears asking to add a yahoo extension. I do not want the extension but that option is not given. All I can do is close the popup only to have it reappear a few clicks later. How do I get this popup to stop? I have the 'block popups' box checked in preferences.

Why do some email messages fail to load with Firefox, but do so with Safara and IE?

I have an email account with Yahoo.com and I receive my mail on a W8.1 desktop PC and an iPad. The desktop uses Firefox 41.0.2 as browser; the iPad uses Safari.

Using the desktop, I find that many (but not all) of the messages I see in the list of incoming messages fail to display, i.e. they fail to complete downloading after I click them. If I click on any of those errant messages on the iPad, however, it loads immediately.

If I close Firefox on the desktop and switch to IE and then access the Yahoo email account, the errant message <does> display.

I conclude that the problem is with Firefox, right? Can someone please tell me how I can fix that bug so that I can download all my incoming messages on the desktop?

I want to delete and then reload Firefox to see if that fixes the problem. Can someone please tell me how I save and restore all my bookmarks in the process?

Thanks.

Latest version of Firefox , always keep up to date .Windows 8.1 running on del optiplex 620 , 2gb ram , 80 gb disk partitioned with Win10 on the other .Running free Panda av and malwarebytes free . Never had any problems with Win 8.1 until now , I have gone back to it because of the many problems with Win 10 . Have checked event viewer , nothing , have checked for crash report , nothing . No malware reported . Every time the only solution is to stop Fox with task manager and then restart when Fox goes back to where it was .

Hi I'm getting really frustrated where everytime firefox does an update it re-installs all the search engines I've deleted and then resets yahoo as the main search engine. Like others on this site I really dislike yahoo, it's a crappy search engine compared to others. Yes I can go in and re-delete yahoo from the list of engines in the settings but I shouldn't have to keep having yahoo forced on me. It's really annoying and I'm thinking about going back to chrome if there's not a permanent fix. Any suggestions or is it now a "feature" of firefox.

I have done everything suggested on this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1238091#question-reply

Let me repeat: I've tried every suggestion. None work. Has Yahoo gotten sneakier within the past few days? Anything else I can do? Running 63.0.1

Attached is a pic of my settings.

Firefox jumps to Yahoo on any subsequent search; how do I ditch Yahoo?

I'm on a Mac desktop. For years, Firefox is my search engine, but suddenly, if I'm searching for a 2nd or 3rd topic on the internet, it's no longer on Firefox - it's on Yahoo. Yahoo seems abysmal and doesn't provide a quality search. I just Googled and tried to follow some instructions, to remove add ons and turn Firefox on in "safe" mode. That didn't help - I still was pushed into Yahoo once I'd done my initial search on Firefox. I don't want to waste my time. Help! Thx.

Yes I already tried the keyword search bla bla bla, I tried deleting and redownloading as well. I don't understand why people use Yahoo, probably the worst search engine out there...

I tried everything on the internet and still it uses yahoo as the search engine. The worst part is when I try to use yahoo, it gives me bullshit sites that I've never dreamed clicking on, I work as a GM at a hotel, and it really does not help that I'm using the same search engine as my grandmother.

Aside from being incapable of completing searches relevant to your query, Yahoo! And Microsoft work together. That should tell you what maximum quality output you're going to get some such an un-evolved, unintelligent search engine.

Yahoo must be the most stupid search engine ever. Yeah, Google for life indeed!...


Bing is bad, but by God Yahoo is by far the WORST!

I've never had a problem with Firefox until recently and this is starting to get on my nerves. My problem is yahoo.

Yahoo keeps showing up as my home page. I go into the settings and I fix it. It doesn't last, and before you know it. Yahoo. It sometimes loads itself as my preferred search bar, as well. Under settings where you can add your own homepage, mine keeps resetting to this: http://searchinterneat-a.akamaihd.net/hm?eq=U0EeCFZVBB8SRggQc1oNWF8VQBgWdwkJTA0QGAAOeFsAU RRHFlcVcQlcVwpHRAMFIk0FA18DB0VXfWFoKB8fHGZGIUtbCXcUVmJKLl1XFg== Which brings me to yahoo. There is also an ad-on that shows up occasionally. I don't know if it is related, I keep disabling/removing it. But it comes back, too.

I've searched and have tried everything. I'm using Windows 10, on a brand new computer. I've tried changing the settings {constantly}. I've tried looking into the properties after right clicking the firefox icon {but there was nothing wrong with that part}. I have even tried refreshing Firefox. That did nothing. I've done some scans and I'm not finding anything

I'm getting rather frustrated. I love Firefox but I'm not going to continue to use it if this doesn't go away. I use this computer for work and I need something that is reliable.

~ thanks
