Why does Firefox keep defaulting to Yahoo search instead of Google regardless of correcting the preference?
Not much more to say really, started a week ago so i changed my home page pref's etc and it just goes back to yahoo. deleted firefox and reinstalled version 17 same problem?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- 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:
