Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

I want to erase or preferably disable the "Recently Bookmarked" functionality when you go to the bookmarks part of the library. How do I do this? I don't see anything in the Support, despite doing searches using several different search terms. It is a strange thing to have without being able to erase it or disable it, especially since bookmarks saved during "private window" searches show up there.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

I have multiple users on my computer, each with their own sign in. How can I have the other users create a Firefox account to sync their own settings when they sign on to this one computer and not have to sync my settings on this same computer or share them between users? EX: With my friend signed in on this computer I tried signing my friend into Firefox and It stated it would share sync settings. I don't want shared sync settings between us.

I'm sure there's a way to do it. I'm just not sure.

Randomly when I press the home button the phrase about:home gets inserted in my address bar above my bookmark toolbar. I have to backspace over it to get rid of it or restart my computer. That only temporarily solves the problem for a day or two, sometimes just for hours. Very annoying so looking for suggestions.
