Every once in a while my Firefox just jumps to Yahoo! and displays Yahoo! 404 - Page Not Found handler

Posted

When I type in a URL in the address bar, for example http://www.LinkedIn.com sometimes I am forced to Yahoo!.com and an error is displayed:

Yahoo! 404 Page not found

Sorry, the page you were looking for could not be found

Under "Tools" on your Firefox browser, select Add-Ons. On the Add-Ons page, select the Extensions tab. Scroll through the list until you find the Yahoo toolbar add-on. Disable, and then remove the add-on. I've had no problems since I did this earlier this evening. Easy fix!
