When browsing, a Yahoo popup often appears asking to add a yahoo extension. I do not want the extension but that option is not given. All I can do is close the popup only to have it reappear a few clicks later. How do I get this popup to stop? I have the 'block popups' box checked in preferences.

Firefox v40.0.3, Win7 64-bit SP1 and up-to-date.

Somehow, probably due to a recent software install, Yahoo has hijacked my new tab behavior and I can no longer get to the New Tab tiles that I could do before when I create a new tab or new window (ctrl-t or ctrl-n). I have:

1. Changed the about:config browser.newtab.url entry to about:newtab; it was www.yahoo.com. 2. Removed Yahoo from the list of search engines and ensured that Google was at the top. 3. Followed the process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page but I cannot find the cog icon on the New Tab page since I can't get a tab with the tiles (i.e. I can find the New Tab controls referred to on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hide-or-display-sites-new-tab-page).

I would really like my tiles back.

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!

Latest version of Firefox , always keep up to date .Windows 8.1 running on del optiplex 620 , 2gb ram , 80 gb disk partitioned with Win10 on the other .Running free Panda av and malwarebytes free . Never had any problems with Win 8.1 until now , I have gone back to it because of the many problems with Win 10 . Have checked event viewer , nothing , have checked for crash report , nothing . No malware reported . Every time the only solution is to stop Fox with task manager and then restart when Fox goes back to where it was .

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 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 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.

Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 , , Blocked, [-1], [-1],0.0.0

-Website Data- Category: Unspecified Domain: xa.yimg.com IP Address: 216.155.194.58 Port: [58262] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

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

I have a problem specific to printing a Yahoo email. I click on "MORE", then Print. Then it opens a new window. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a Print Preview available so I can see how it will print. What often happens is I get a blank last page or one with just a line of unwanted words. So I waste a sheet of paper.

With a Preview, I can see that and, instead, print a selection.

I'm wondering if there is a shortcut key to enable Print Preview? If not, dear Firefox, I wish you would add this function.

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
