Default search engine keeps changing to Yandex withouth my consent after firefox updated
Mozilla has an agreement with Yandex in my region. I understand the need for a sponsor, but I am very unhappy with my preferred search engine being changed to Yandex after each Firefox update without my consent or knowledge.

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; (<Control> [Mac=<Command>] <Shift> A)
In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Remove “ Yandex “ Anything.
Also remove SafeSearch, SearchAssist Incognito, FileConverter Addon, SearchLock, DiscreteSearch, WebSearch, Findwide Search Engine, securedsearch
Now do the same in the computer’s Programs Folder.
Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the Applications folder. Linux: Check your user manual.
I don't have any of those extensions installed. Neither have I those applications installed. Also this problem is cross-platform ( I interchange an Ubuntu 18.04, Windows 10, and a MacOs 10.15.6 throughout my work day)
Hi, can you look at something for me please?
If you go to the menu button , then click Add-ons.
On the page that appears, is there a languages section?
I do not see a "languages" section at the add-ons page (same as about:addons?) My language settings are under about:preferences#general and is set to English (USA), although I live in a different geographical region.

Yes, that's the same.

Ok, I'm not really sure what this can be. We have just made some significant changes in 79 to the search service back-end which might help. Can we wait until 80 comes out (somewhere around 25th Aug) and see if this affects you then?
If it does, then we can look at it in greater detail.
