So my search engine in my address bar has recently automatically switched to Yahoo! and, I don't want this. But I cannot find a way to fix this, I've tried many solutions but nothing works. As you can see my search engine is Google but when I search something in my address bar this happens and when I search Yahoo in my about:config this comes up So I cannot find the problem! If you can help that would be great!

Also I use the Nightly Client.

Hello StygianICe,

It looks like the same way. On the toolbar where the search otion is click the down arrow next to the yahoo symbol and choose Google. This should change the search engine. If you are talking about the homepage: go to Firefox > Options > General > and change the home page there :-)

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.

If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:
