im using the latest version of firefox. OS is windows 7. yahoo is my homepage. for example: i type 'google' into the search bar. the search page comes up and i click on the main address for Google and it takes me to Google.com. when i click on the bookmark 'star', it gets saved as a yahoo search in the bookmark menu and not as a site address

Hi bigwil

It works fine for me, maybe try the Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to see if it has something to do with the Yahoo toolbar.

Another thing to try is clearing your cache, maybe it is mistakenly opening an bad page from cache.  How to clear the Firefox cache

now, it won't let me bookmark anything. very frustrating but i know there's a solution. it's all part of the fun

maybe i'll have better luck if i use MSN or GOOGLE as my homepage and just use yahoo as a mail site.

maybe a new browser too. firefox and yahoo are so intertwined, there seems to be no solution or end to this puzzle.

The only thing I can imagine is the profile is corrupt. Use a run command and enter firefox.exe -p this will open the profile menu and you can create a new profile. Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data

"firefox and yahoo are so intertwined ..."

No they're not, Mozilla has no arrangements with Yahoo other than it being one of the 6 default search engines for the Search Bar . You nay have installed a special Yahoo version of Firefox. Take a look at Help > About Firefox and see if there is anything in there about Yahoo 1.8 in that window.
