How do I change the searchengine that starts with FF

Posted

Dear sir: For years and years I have been a loyal user of Netscape products. Another s/w that I have used over the years is Yahoo.com. I don't know why it is, but since the latest update FF does not start with Yahoo like I'm accustomed to. How do I get Yahoo.com back again?

Thank you for choosing Firefox ;)

I guess you want to change the Home Page: click on the button menu (like a sandwich) at the top right > Options. In the "Home Page" field, enter "https://www.yahoo.com/" or any other website you want to have at start.

Another way is to change the Default Search Engine. When you are in the Options, open the "Research" on the left, then choose Yahoo in the drop-down menu.
