Firefox keeps taking me to Yahoo search despite Google being the choice

Hi guys, I'm on Firefox QUantum 68.11.Oesr and I have a problem with my searches. NO matter what I do, it keeps taking me to Yahoo search which I hate but I can't figure out how to fix that. I've had that happen before and a buddy helped me fix it but I can't get hold of him.

Google is set in the options so that's not the problem. This is driving me nuts 'cause I search for stuff frequently and I hate Yahoo.

Thanks

George

Nevermind guys, I just disabled a few add ons and now it's working again.

Hi George, thank you for the update. If there is a misbehaved extension that hijacks your searches without making clear that it does that, you may want to "report" it or at least name and shame.

Thanks, I just did. It was an add on called Movie Suggest. I confirmed by enabling it and it all started again so I removed it after reporting it.
