I am using Firefox Quantum and when I type something in the address bar Yahoo searches pop up. There are obviously many other people with the same problem as I have seen this same issue brought up multiple times when I have researched this problem. I have looked at the answers provided in the various forums etc. and none have provided an answer that works for me. I have done the "about:config", "about:preferences#search", gone in and deleted or inactivated all add ons, etc. and either the expected response such as looking for the "keyword.url" is not there or does not work. If this can't be fixed I am going to stop using Firefox all together as this Yahoo search thing is SO annoying. I would think that with this being a common problem the help sites for Mozilla/Firefox would have the answer readily available. Furthermore, just my two cents worth, but I think it stinks that either Yahoo or some other associated program hijacks the address bar and changes the search from Google, which is what I had set up, to Yahoo without a warning or even without asking if I would like this. The results that Yahoo search produces are very inadequate.

As the question asks, I have tried resetting the browser and starting the browser in safe mode, but i still cannot ask or answer any questions in Yahoo answers......i always get this error code/message when try and do either, Sorry, we were unable to proceed with your request. Please try again.", but when i tried with google chrome, i am able to post as normal,...how do i get firefox to work properly with Yahoo answers? I assume this problem is being caused by the Firefox browser, due to another browser having no problem...

So how do i fix this please?

I have been using using the "Email a link to this page" feature for a long time (previously it was Share page feature I believe) and have correctly setup the mailto: in preferences to use Yahoo Mail. Recently in Firefox 62, the feature now only starts up the Compose mail function for Yahoo Mail but the message is blank. Previously it had automatically inserted the Subject with page title and body with page url.

I've tested in both Linux and Windows, with all add-ons disabled and the behavior is the same.

I recently bought a new computer with windows 10 and ever since, the left and right arrows are missing on the yahoo news scroll bar. So I can only read the first 5 stories and not 80 (as shown in the picture) . I checked the chrome and microsoft edge browsers but the arrows are missing there as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've never had a problem with Firefox until recently and this is starting to get on my nerves. My problem is yahoo.

Yahoo keeps showing up as my home page. I go into the settings and I fix it. It doesn't last, and before you know it. Yahoo. It sometimes loads itself as my preferred search bar, as well. Under settings where you can add your own homepage, mine keeps resetting to this: http://searchinterneat-a.akamaihd.net/hm?eq=U0EeCFZVBB8SRggQc1oNWF8VQBgWdwkJTA0QGAAOeFsAU RRHFlcVcQlcVwpHRAMFIk0FA18DB0VXfWFoKB8fHGZGIUtbCXcUVmJKLl1XFg== Which brings me to yahoo. There is also an ad-on that shows up occasionally. I don't know if it is related, I keep disabling/removing it. But it comes back, too.

I've searched and have tried everything. I'm using Windows 10, on a brand new computer. I've tried changing the settings {constantly}. I've tried looking into the properties after right clicking the firefox icon {but there was nothing wrong with that part}. I have even tried refreshing Firefox. That did nothing. I've done some scans and I'm not finding anything

I'm getting rather frustrated. I love Firefox but I'm not going to continue to use it if this doesn't go away. I use this computer for work and I need something that is reliable.

~ thanks

Yes I already tried the keyword search bla bla bla, I tried deleting and redownloading as well. I don't understand why people use Yahoo, probably the worst search engine out there...

I tried everything on the internet and still it uses yahoo as the search engine. The worst part is when I try to use yahoo, it gives me bullshit sites that I've never dreamed clicking on, I work as a GM at a hotel, and it really does not help that I'm using the same search engine as my grandmother.

Aside from being incapable of completing searches relevant to your query, Yahoo! And Microsoft work together. That should tell you what maximum quality output you're going to get some such an un-evolved, unintelligent search engine.

Yahoo must be the most stupid search engine ever. Yeah, Google for life indeed!...


Bing is bad, but by God Yahoo is by far the WORST!

I tried reloading Firefox and searching the registry for the Yahoo URL to no avail.

What keeps changing my home page to Yahoo? I searched my PC for SPIGOT to no avail either. Anyone else have this problem? More to the point, anyone know what causes the home page to be reset to Yahoo after it is reset in Options to the original home page? There are similar questions on htis website, but no answers to my specific problem.

I have an email account with Yahoo.com and I receive my mail on a W8.1 desktop PC and an iPad. The desktop uses Firefox 41.0.2 as browser; the iPad uses Safari.

Using the desktop, I find that many (but not all) of the messages I see in the list of incoming messages fail to display, i.e. they fail to complete downloading after I click them. If I click on any of those errant messages on the iPad, however, it loads immediately.

If I close Firefox on the desktop and switch to IE and then access the Yahoo email account, the errant message <does> display.

I conclude that the problem is with Firefox, right? Can someone please tell me how I can fix that bug so that I can download all my incoming messages on the desktop?

I want to delete and then reload Firefox to see if that fixes the problem. Can someone please tell me how I save and restore all my bookmarks in the process?

Thanks.
