I had Google set as my default search in the upper right bar and now Yahoo had taken over. No matter what I do Yahoo comes back as the default.

What you need to do is the following:

Update Firefox to 15.0.1. Update Firefox to the latest release

After that, Try to Reset Firefox. Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

If you do not keep changes after a restart then see:
