I used to have a google search bar on the upper right of my screen and now it shows Yahoo in there as my default search engine.

Chosen solution

You can check for suspicious extensions that may have changed the default search engine.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/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 or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:
