If your search engine keeps changing to Yahoo, this is typically done through an illegitimate add-on installed on Firefox or another program installed on your computer.
You can try disabling your add-ons that you have installed to try and figure out which one is causing the issue.
Additionally, many malware scanners can detect issues with unwanted programs, unwanted browser add-ons and other infections. You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- Anti-Rootkit Utility - TDSSKiller (for more info, see this alternate TDSSKiller download page)
- AdwCleaner (for more info, see this alternate AdwCleaner download page)
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.
Hope this helps.
