What's up with Yahoo.com in Firefox?

The Yahoo homepage is completely different in Firefox than other browsers. I don't like way it looks and the bouncing header is annoying.

When using Firefox, Yahoo often cuts in, usually with a DNS complaint, and won't let me connect. I don't use Yahoo. I continually strip it from the list of possible browser search choices, but it keeps coming back to the list, and makes itself my browser of choice. I keep correcting this, and it keeps coming back. It is causing me to have to use another browser most of the time, though I would prefer not to. Please tell me what I can do to prevent Yahoo from trying to control my computer!!!

My Firefox is 39.0, and my Mac 10.7.5. I believe Flash Player may be involved (maybe not) and that is version 18.0 r0, which is not allowed to act unless I tell it to.

Firefox v40.0.3, Win7 64-bit SP1 and up-to-date.

Somehow, probably due to a recent software install, Yahoo has hijacked my new tab behavior and I can no longer get to the New Tab tiles that I could do before when I create a new tab or new window (ctrl-t or ctrl-n). I have:

1. Changed the about:config browser.newtab.url entry to about:newtab; it was www.yahoo.com. 2. Removed Yahoo from the list of search engines and ensured that Google was at the top. 3. Followed the process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page but I cannot find the cog icon on the New Tab page since I can't get a tab with the tiles (i.e. I can find the New Tab controls referred to on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hide-or-display-sites-new-tab-page).

I would really like my tiles back.

Latest version of Firefox , always keep up to date .Windows 8.1 running on del optiplex 620 , 2gb ram , 80 gb disk partitioned with Win10 on the other .Running free Panda av and malwarebytes free . Never had any problems with Win 8.1 until now , I have gone back to it because of the many problems with Win 10 . Have checked event viewer , nothing , have checked for crash report , nothing . No malware reported . Every time the only solution is to stop Fox with task manager and then restart when Fox goes back to where it was .

All other websites such as foxnews.com, cnn.com, breitbart.com, etc, have no issues.

This problem started yesterday, 9-23-15. I did a Firefox "refresh", but the problem persists.

My OS is Windows XP with Service Pack 3.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am about to leave firefox. It is not professional what you are doing by having me repeatedly trying to restore google search engine from your STUPID Yahoo.

Shame on you. You need to learn to respect your subscribers' preferences and freedom of choice!
