firefox updated itself, evidently with the version with Yahoo Search. I think Yahoo Search is inferior to my old favorite good one and have not been able to rid myself of the Yahoo search.....
All search engines have been eliminated except for my old favorite good one.....still yahoo
Reinstalled firefox from download several months old....all search engines eliminated except my old favorite good one. .... still yahoo.
Wrote hate mail to Yahoo called them everything but white, they reckoned they'd won and thought I should start with firefox after all it's their browser.
How does one go about getting rid of Yahoo Search?
Go to Solution.
I had the same problem - downloaded a free program and next thing I knew, Yahoo had taken over my Firefox search bar. One solution that works for me (Windows 7, 64-bit) is to do the following:
Go into the computer C: drive > Program Files (x86) > Mozilla Firefox > searchplugins.
In that searchplugins folder, simply delete the "yahoo" file. Restart Firefox and voila! no more Yahoo!
Go to tools/add-ons/ and disable freeze.com Net Assistant. This should solve the problem.
Maybe this links could help
Very helpful, ty.
FYI for others. I also had to disable the Default Tab 1.0 addon.
