how to uninstall a Yahoo-affiliated "Search Here" functionality from Firefox

I picked up a Yahoo Search functionality inside Firefox but there was no Yahoo toolbar. I ran Revo Uninstaller and there was no listing for Yahoo. I ran Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel but there was no listing for Yahoo. However, in my Programs File under My Computer there is a folder titled Yahoo.

Whenever I opened Firefox I would get a Yahoo Search page instead of Google. I did a bunch of searches for solutions and found that I needed to delete all of the search listings in the drop down list from clicking the gray arrow in the search box.

They were all in there – Google, Yahoo, Bing, Twitter, and an odd entry called “Search Here” I deleted everything except Google. Then I went to about:config and reset the Keyword URL to the Google entry it was supposed to be.

I thought everything was fine but all of this left me with some strange Search Here window next to the Firefox Tabs and the same Search Here entry in the drop down list previously changed.

If I perform a search from the search window next to the open tabs I get a Yahoo Search result:

If I perform a search from Google I get a Google result as I should.

Interestingly, the Search Here listing appears again automatically in the listing of search engines.

Starting in the last day or two, every time I start Firefox, in addition to my homepage, I get a nuisance tab that is checking my plugins. I need to disable this stupid function or I will have to discontinue using Mozilla Firefox after 20 years as a faithful Mozilla user. I am happy with, and have no intentions of upgrading, my version of Firefox (3.6.17). I also have no intentions of upgrading my Flash plugin as newer versions are incompatible with an online activity in which I engage.

I have followed instructions in the user forum for changing the status of plugins.update.notifyUser from true to false in "about:config", but it apparently resets itself to true. None of the user forum suggestions correct this problem. If this unwanted, stupid tab cannot be disabled, I guess I will have to abandon Mozilla, both for Firefox and Thunderbird, and pursue options that do not force unwanted content on the user.

In addition, it seems impossible to actually speak to anyone at Mozilla about the problem. So hopefully someone will answer this question with a solution to the problem.

How do I get ride of the dreadful CONDUIT SEARCH which has colonised my Firefox search like computer Herpes? I have tried a few of the replies but nothing has helped - it appears nowhere on any program list and even the following didn't do the trick :-

Owner AnonymousUser 1 year ago Several tried to but no one seemed to understand the real problem. I COULD, because it was mine too. So it follows the only ultimate solution:

1. Open Firefox 2. On the address bar, type – about:config in the URL. Press Enter. 3. You will be warned about Warranty. Click on “I’ll be careful…”

4. On the Filter dialog box type – search.conduit 5. It will display all related entries. Right-click on Preferences Name and Reset. It worked for me, after trying a dozen of "fake" solutions. ;)

Other than serious chainsaw work, any ideas?

I am using Firefox on Windows 7. I am getting a popup message box that has title "Adobe Flash Player Settings" and it says that s.ytimg.com is requesting to store information on your computer. There are numerous internet complaints regarding the same message for Internet Explorer. They say it is an adobe message caused by YouTube but the message box looks like it is a trick for a virus because it asks you to approve or deny using more memory space. it says "Requested 10kb" How do you fix this and or turn it off or remove it? Adobe help says it is the application causing the problem, but this is not an app, but a server name. The message pops up right in the middle of any embedded YouTube video and ruins the ability to open it without hitting one of the two buttons. Corrective actions are on Microsoft for Internet Explorer, but nothing in your database for firefox.

Firefox is really starting to annoy me. Sometimes it runs slow and sluggishly, other times it doesn't. Usually it does though. When I open new tabs, the connection icon will just keep swirling. I constantly get High CPU Useage alerts from my virus protection. I've done everything listed in the below articles. Does anyone have some advice? Firefox didn't use to be like this.

Thank you.

We've recently begun having problems with Firefox. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, rebooted, defragged, manually gone through all user profiles and deleted /user/(username)/appdata/mozilla/firefox files (thread may be incorrect but that's the gist of it)- I'm at a loss. Here's the issue:

Running Windows Vista Ultimate. Most recent version of Firefox (from Mozilla website) 15.0 for Windows

Firefox SEEMS to install correctly, however when I click on the icon to initiate the program, I repeatedly get the error:

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

From what I've read on the internet, this could be caused by user profiles, but I can't get to the user profiles because I can't get the browser to initiate.

As an aside, but may or may not be relevant (this isn't my computer- I'm just trying to help out some friends!)- Google Chrome ALSO isn't working, and they've recently updated their World of Warcraft client software, which is giving them a black screen. We haven't yet tried to uninstall WoW, but that's my next step.

Right now we're stuck with IE9.0.9 and <shudder> I hate IE with a passion.

This started happening for no reason that I can find. Every few minutes a pop-up window appears that says: Browser startup change

    An unknown change was detected on your browser's search settings

(button) Keep my current settings (button) I am aware of the change and approve it

                                                 (button)YES

None of the buttons do anything. The close button doesn't work. The window sits on top.

I've been plagued with unwanted programs trying to change my browser setting and adding toolbars I don't want.. I've been able to delete / disable these manually.

The window doesn't show up with all extensions turned off. I can only turn it off by selecting it on the task bar and closing it there. I've been turning extensions on or off but it only goes away with all extensions off.

so I noticed lately (the past ~5 weeks) that Firefox runs REALLY REALLY slow. I usually have 3 windows open all the time (one with about 7-8 tabs and the other two with 5-6 tabs, total of 20, maybe 25 tabs at some point but ends up going back to about 20 tabs at the end of the day)

it was fine for the past 2 years never had a problem. usually it takes about a week (or longer sometimes) before I need to restart my laptop to clear up some memory. but now I cant do it at all. as soon as I open firefox I will notice my laptop gets slower and slower and the fans comes on and laptop gets hot fast. CPU usage for firefox is high same with Ram.

here is what I did to try and solve the problem. I first updates all the add ons, didnt do anything. cleared the cash,,, nothing. disabled the add-ons. it helped but still wasn't fast enough. so I reset firefox and had all the add ons removed. still same thing. I deletet firefox and reinstalled it... still same problem. to confirm that my laptop is good enough to run those many tabs I downloaded google chrome to test it and I had three windows with a total of like 34 tabs (yes 34) and it was running fine. actually I think from now on I will be using chrome and not even go back to firefox due to how fast it was!! and its using 30% less of the memory too!!


I have been using Firefox since 08 and it was the best browser I have ever used and never looked at any other one. but I downloaded chrome to check and see if my laptop was the problem but now I know its the browser. I noticed that this problem only started when this update came on few weeks ago (not sure which one because in the past 5-6 weeks I kept getting those updates. I think I did at least 3 updates if not even more) but I am sure it was one of the 15.X updates. now I am running the latest update which seems like its even worse.

any help would be appreciate it. I am still trying to make this browser work but if this problem keeps going on then I guess I have no choice but to move on to a different one. I miss some of the features that firefox have over chrome.

I have a mid 2010 macbook pro. OS X 10.8.2, 320GB (with has about 72GB of free space), 8GB ram, 2.66GHz intel core 2 duo, running latest updates on everything and running Lion with the latest update too.

tried to search but kept geting those old thread and its locked now so cant post in it.

Thanks
