When I use Google search in FireFox, I am always switched to yahoo search. I can't use Google search now. I have no this problem when using Safari. How can I solve this issue? Thank you in advance. Ming

Hi, there's two possible causes for this:
- First is to check your add-ons (select menu button and choose Add-ons) for anything you don't recognise and remove it. If you recognise all of them, try disabling them in turn and see if that helps.
- If the previous step doesn't help, or if this starts to happen again after a while, then try checking your machine for malware - MalwareBytes is a common one I've heard of that fixes these types if issues.
Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; (<Control> [Mac=<Command>] <Shift> A)
In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Remove “ yahoo “ Anything.
Also remove SafeSearch, SearchAssist Incognito, FileConverter Addon, SearchLock, DiscreteSearch, WebSearch, Findwide Search Engine, securedsearch
Now do the same in the computer’s Programs Folder.
Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the Applications folder. Linux: Check your user manual.
