HOW DO I GET RID OF YAHOO DEFAULT SEARCH ENGINE? NOT THE TOOL BAR.
I have done everything I have seen in these forums I have deleted everything yahoo in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins all that's left is google search. I have gone onto my plugins in firefox and removed everything in there that isn't google at least I got rid of the yahoo search bar that's easy, so how the heck does one get rid of the yahoo default search engine?
Re: HOW DO I GET RID OF YAHOO DEFAULT SEARCH ENGINE? NOT THE TOOL BAR.
Do you mean the search engine on the Navigation Toolbar or the search engine used by the location bar?
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
If there is a problem with searching via the default about:home page then try to reset the search engine used on the about:home page.
Reset the browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone pref via the right-click context menu to the default on the about:config page and close and restart Firefox to restore the about:home page to its default.
