I have searched the web, Youtube and basically any related Google search out there and there seems to be so many people with the same problem and yet I cannot find any replies that work!
I need to remove Yahoo, Totally, for good! and Forever!, Bloody hate it, its totally useless, and just gives shit results, so just really dont want it at all!
So looking around, there are loads of comments stating that this is a result of extensions in Firefox... Nope, dont have any! all deleted and removed.
Or its a problem with Maleware, and to the best of my knowledge I dont have any, Avast sorts out the scanning, and Malwarebytes is run once a week, and the PC has just 3 applications installed, Firefox, Cinema 4D and Adobe Illustrator and that is it.
Windows Updates are turned off and the system is basiacally locked down being a works PC.
If I go into settings, the default search engine is Google, all others are deleted, My Home page is set to 'www.google.co.uk', and all references to Yahoo have been removed along with Bing, and all other rubish. Shit down Firefox, reopen it and what do I get.... Bloody Yahoo search page!
Chjeck the settings and they are all OK still, type in something in the search bar at the top of the screen, and I get Yahoo, even though I removed Yahoo from the settings > Search engines in Firefox.
The ONLY 2 ways that I can get google to appear is to either type it in the address bar or select the dropdown in the seach bar and select the only item listed that is 'Google'.
Please is there a fix?
