It just started a day or two ago. The double spaces in my sent messages are received by the recipient (including myself) as ??. There is a double question mark for every additional space.

My encoding has not changed.

I have a Windows 10 desktop, notebook, and 2-in-1 tablet. The problem occurs in messages sent from all 3 computers, and I didn't change anything in any of them.

I can't find anything useful with Google.

HELP!!!

My computer indicate that only Google and McAfee Secure are search options. But when I type an address into the website space, a green plus sign appears in the search bar and then the search engine being used is Yahoo,, not Google. I have used a website to remove the Yahoo search engine, and I cannot find any evidence of Yahoo on the computer (but I'm not very computer literate). Help!!!

I can not log into my Yahoo accounts from Firefox. I have one open; I try to open another, and it consistently tells me my password is incorrect.

This IS NOT a Yahoo problem. I can log in just fine from Edge. I like Firefox much better than Edge, but if this isn't fixed I will permanently switch. I have uninstalled and reloaded Firefox 3 times. Once. the Norton tech did it for me. Then I did it twice. It doesn't seem to correct

Hello, Ive got Quantum 63.01 running on macbook pro. Yahoo barging in as the 'default search engine'. I go to my preference page I delete it, google is back to being my default search engine. A few days later, boom- there is yahoo again showing up as the default. This goes on several times a week, and its driving me nuts. If I didnt like yahoo before, I really hate them now. Ive gone through all of your solutions, there is nothing in my extensions or add-ons that shouldnt be there. So why does this continue to happen? I need to get rid of yahoo now. I even ran yahoo through the finder and there is nothing on my laptop for yahoo. Isnt there a script I can look for in firefox that can be deleted or something?? Any and all help is truly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

None............and I do mean NONE of the posted solutions posted permanently resolve the problem. They will temporarily, but inevitably Yahoo rears it's ugly head again. Comically Mozilla has admitted awareness of the problem stating "it was a glitch in version 35, but it has been corrected and updating to version 36 will take care of it". So what are we on now..............version 42 and it's still ongoing. The I.T. department at the corporation I work for finally got so fed up with calls about this that we are no longer permitted to use the Firefox browser on corporate owned PC's. Unless Yahoo has a malicious hacker in their ranks or there is a "cyber browser conspiracy" between Yahoo and Mozilla I find it incredibly difficult to believe they can't resolve this!?!?!?

Hi,

Just when life was tripping along nicely and all Yahoo's videos had been prevented from auto-play, along comes the latest version of FF -- Version 66.0 which appears to have thrown AdBlock & AdBlockPlus into turmoil and released their hold on the videos.

Any knowledge about this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the cause?

Best regards,

Ian

When using Firefox, Yahoo often cuts in, usually with a DNS complaint, and won't let me connect. I don't use Yahoo. I continually strip it from the list of possible browser search choices, but it keeps coming back to the list, and makes itself my browser of choice. I keep correcting this, and it keeps coming back. It is causing me to have to use another browser most of the time, though I would prefer not to. Please tell me what I can do to prevent Yahoo from trying to control my computer!!!

My Firefox is 39.0, and my Mac 10.7.5. I believe Flash Player may be involved (maybe not) and that is version 18.0 r0, which is not allowed to act unless I tell it to.

Hi I'm getting really frustrated where everytime firefox does an update it re-installs all the search engines I've deleted and then resets yahoo as the main search engine. Like others on this site I really dislike yahoo, it's a crappy search engine compared to others. Yes I can go in and re-delete yahoo from the list of engines in the settings but I shouldn't have to keep having yahoo forced on me. It's really annoying and I'm thinking about going back to chrome if there's not a permanent fix. Any suggestions or is it now a "feature" of firefox.

BT Yahoo have altered the design of their webmail pages within the last few days. When I go into the settings to set up a Vacation Response, the page is - well - unresponsive! It won't let me write my message. BT tells me this is because Firefox has installed an update which is causing the problem. Is this true? On their advice I was able to do the vacation response message via the Microsoft Edge browser. Will Firefox be updating to deal with this change or do I have to now access BT Webmail via Edge? I much prefer you guys! I'm not very technical by the way so the troubleshooting info below didn't mean anything to me.

Let me repeat: I've tried every suggestion. None work. Has Yahoo gotten sneakier within the past few days? Anything else I can do? Running 63.0.1

Attached is a pic of my settings.

I'm on a Mac desktop. For years, Firefox is my search engine, but suddenly, if I'm searching for a 2nd or 3rd topic on the internet, it's no longer on Firefox - it's on Yahoo. Yahoo seems abysmal and doesn't provide a quality search. I just Googled and tried to follow some instructions, to remove add ons and turn Firefox on in "safe" mode. That didn't help - I still was pushed into Yahoo once I'd done my initial search on Firefox. I don't want to waste my time. Help! Thx.
