Every since the last update from Firefox, I have difficulty with my Search Engines. When I click on my Bing Icon and enter my search question, I end up at YAHOO search site. The same thing is happening when I use Google, again I end up at the YAHOO search site. Does any one know what is going on? Is this a Firefox issue?

hi, unfortunately this rather sounds like an issue caused by adware/malware. please try to launch firefox in safemode once, then go to the firefox menu ≡ > add-ons > extensions panel & remove any suspicious entries (things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, toolbars, etc).
