Sine new upgrade, Firefox resets to Yahoo everything upon re-start. VERY ANNOYING.


Since the new upgrade, every time I start Firefox, all my settings are taken over by Yahoo. Homepage goes to Yahoo, searches go to Yahoo, etc. I go in and reset and same thing happens. I go in to about:config, change everything and same thing happens. This is annoying to the point that I am likely going to SWITCH BROWSERS (that means I will no longer use you product!) if you can not provide a solution. I don't use Yahoo for anything and don't want to!
