Yo moved form Google search to yahoo search. I left yahoo years ago as I was hacked every other day and they do not care about security at all and all their search page gives me is a list of more search pages not what I want to see, I want what I was searching for. I hate all things yahoo and since you are making it so hard to leave ysearch I am now going to have to move to chrome which I do not love but at least google will give me things I am looking for not just a list of other search engines for it. I use firefox at home and work but now will leave it permanently as I really hate all things yahoo. I tried to get help this is all they told me I could do

Hello, I should start by saying that I'm a technophobe so I admit I'm not very good at explaining my problem or understanding how to deal with it. A couple of weeks ago my tabs began crashing regularly. After researching online, I've refreshed Firefox, done a clean re-install, emptied the cache, disabled add-ons, tried safe mode and turned off hardware acceleration. None have made any difference. I'm up-to-date with Firefox and am using Windows 10. When I switch to Microsoft Edge I don't get any problems at all. I take this to mean that it's not a problem with my PC which has all the latest updates installed. I there anything else I can try? I'm not keen on Edge and would prefer to stick with Firefox. Incidentally, this tab has crashed twice whilst I was typing this message. Thank you.

When opening a new tab from my Yahoo homepage, I would automatically see a page with buttons at the top of my most commonly used websites---amazon, my email, my bank, etc.

Below those buttons would be links to about a dozen feature-length articles (each link had an image and brief description of the article) from different online news and magazine sources (WAPO, NY Times, New Yorker, Esquire, Vox, etc.) These articles were feature articles and not ads, and they varied in length.

Someone was working on updating my Windows 10 and now I can't access that page. I don't have a name for that page but I do miss it. How can I access that page again?

Hi I have had my firefox setup so that it didn't show the urls drop down with sites I last visited so people didn't see what I looked at so I could be private. Yet this "Top Sites" checkbox was added recently and caused my url bar to show past sites visited. I find this a privacy violation.
