I remove Yahoo from my Search Engine list, but it keeps getting added back as "Your Search Engine Defaults have been restored". I don't want that. How do I stop it?

Hello Tim.

You may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?
