How do I set google as my default search engine? Yahoo keejps coming back, even when I delete it.
I had Google set as my default search in the upper right bar and now Yahoo had taken over. No matter what I do Yahoo comes back as the default.

Try to reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:
Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the about:addons page.

- Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
If you do not keep changes after a restart then see:
