I reset the top search engine selection, but now clicking on a line also goes through Yahoo, and provides completely unhelpfully, and DNS error, as in this url: https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/errorhandler?hspart=gt&hsimp=yhse-gt&q=http%3A%2F%2Fcloud.typography.com%2F6570712%2F721006%2Fcss%2Ffonts.css&type=216107

Whic I reached from the third link down on this page: http://bobcesca.thedailybanter.com/blog-archives/2014/11/both-sides.html?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=both-sides

Did ver 33.1 become branded? How do I get rid of this? Without some help, I'll drop FF because if it won't clear links, it's no good to me. thanks for your help.

And why does your report show Ver 33.o when the About Firefox box says 33.1?

Chosen solution

I redownloaded Ver 33.1 and the same problem showed up. The learn more link called out something called Search Settings Toolbar, which I could find nowhere. Going through Troubleshooting Tips, I Reset (the brand new d/l'ed version of) FF and the problem (so far) has gone away.

This gives me little confidence in the process. Does anyone have a clue what's going on? Has Yahoo paid to take over the world?

Edit: the "clicking on a line" should read "clicking on a link."
