Why does my Firefox automatically send me to Yahoo for searches?

Posted

For about a week now, Firefox has automatically sent me to a Yahoo search engine, which regularly reports that it cannot find any links to the inquiry I have made. I switch to Safari and it always finds multiple links to the same search. I do not want Yahoo, nor this problem. How do I prevent it?

Wow! You're good. Somehow my default search engine got kidnapped by Yahoo. I had only gone in to make sure it was set as my home page, and it was. It's working now! Thank you.
