You can delete the user.js file in the profile folder and use the searchreset tool, links should show more.
You could also even use a user.js file to lock it to yahoo.com
Make a user.js file provided by the instructions listed in the above link and add this code...
You can replace yahoo.com with whatever you want.
You may also be installing malware, here is a page to stop doing such and be safer when downloading executables.

You also should update Firefox to prevent security vunerabilites, for example, a hijack could had been prevented by atleast having v23 and above (removed pref that could lock search provider).
Type about:config in a new window address bar. Click 'I will be careful. You will see all kinds of information that Firefox uses so it knows how to work. There is a search bar at the top of the page. Type 'browser.startup.homepage' and check its entry. You can change it to what ever web page you want, or you can enter; 'about:blank' for a blank page. I use the Firefox home page; about:home. After, go back to the search bar and type; browser.newtab.url. This is what a new tab page will display. Do the same thing here. You can have the same for both or have each open to different pages.
Note that your System Details List shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize some prefs on each start of Firefox.
The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created it, so normally it wouldn't be there. you can check its content with a plain text editor if you didn't create this file yourself.
The user.js file is read each time you start Firefox and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.
