How do I get rid of Yahoo seach engine as the default?

How in the world do I get rid of the Yahoo search engine? No matter what I do, it comes up as the default.

I've tried these: Using the search engine management in the search box 1) removed Yahoo. 2) moved Yahoo to the bottom.

I've also changed the search engine in about:config.

I don't have AVG or myfreeze.

I don't know what to try next.

My OS is Windows7 64-bit.

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. THEN I CHECKED MY PLUGINS. DISABLED IT ...PROBLEM SOLVED. IT WAS MY.FREEZE.COM. GOT IT WHEN DOWNLOADED BIT ZIPPER. IT WORKED FOR ME. HOPE IT WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.LOOK FOR A SIMILAR PLUGIN.

YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK YOUR PLUGINS AS STATED ABOVE. OR JUST TYPE "HOW TO MAKE GOOGLE MY HOME PAGE" AND JUST FOLLOW.... AND REMEMBER, ALWAYS CHECK YOUR PLUGINS. I ALWAYS HAVE FIREFOX AS MY HOMEPAGE WITH GOOGLE SEARCH. IF ALL ELSE FAILS RE-INSTALL FIREFOX AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.GOOD LUCK
