Whenever I go on certain sites it seems to crash and produce Yahoosearch results for the script the page was trying to load.

When I go to Amazon or sometimes other sites the page loads and then I get redirected to a Yahoo search for the script the page was loading. It means I can no longer use Firefox for viewing Amazon or some other sites, which in turn means I won't use Firefox at all because I don't have this issue with Chrome, for example.

Annoyingly it also then defaults my search engine back to Yahoo, which I cannot stand and wish they gave the option to just remove everything to do with Yahoo.

I've attached an image of the page I get redirected to once Amazon had completed loading.
