Since the last update my default browser is Yahoo, and the list in Preferences contains only BrowserDefault and PlaySearchNow.
I am getting really skeptical about any new updates from you guys.
How do I get my list of browsers back, specfically Google?!

Do you mean search engines as shown in "Options/Preferences -> Search" ?
Is "Restore Default Search Engines" enabled ?
You can check for recently installed suspicious or unknown extensions.
You can try to rename/remove search.json.mozlz4 (and possible search.json, search-metadata.json, search.sqlite) in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed to rebuild the search engines registry.
You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
- Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
Firefox will rebuild search.json.mozlz4 from the builtin search engines.
Note that Firefox 79 and newer releases require Mac OS X 10.12 or newer.
Users on Mac OS X 10.9 and 10.10 and 10.11 have been moved to the Firefox 78.x ESR version.
Important - macOS 10.9, 10.10 and 10.11 users move to Extended Support Release
