regarding yahoo

Problem 1: On several occasions have I tried to change my search enginge in Mozilla from yahoo to others. I hate yahoo. But yahoo always comes back on it's own.. I don't want yahoo at all in my Mozilla Firefox. How can I stop it permanently. It doesn't seem to work.

Problem 2: Yahoo blocks certain pages I try to enter even though I have the filtering set to allow those pages. Why doesn't it follow my settings? Again, I hate yahoo and I don't want it to block any pages!

Please help me correct these issues.

Thank you Henrik Henziger

Your installed extensions list shows 3 dodgy add-ons, that are known Malware / Virus carrier's. eBay Shopping Assistant 2.4 ({A92BC493-FA5B-40a5-AFC8-6672926C9544}) Searchme 2.8 ( Slick Savings 3.8 ({84977DE9-1026-4508-B9A7-9116BDAAB098})

Read about what each of those does to your computer.

I can't help you with any Mac OSX specifics as far a removing them, but do recommend that you read this support article.

In the end it is probably best that you visit one or more of the 'malware removal' fora shown at the bottom of that page.

As far as having a problem setting your own 'default' search engine. please see this support article to learn how changing the 'default' is done in Firefox 43.0.

But you should get rid of all the Malware first; one of those 3 extensions might have 'locked' that preference and will keep resetting it as Firefox opens until you get rid of them.
