Lolu chungechunge lwabekwa kunqolobane. Uyacelwa ubuze umbuzo omusha uma udinga usizo.

While surfing, when a broken link comes up, location bar is redirected to search.yahoo, not my SE choice. How do I reset this to one I prefer?

Kuphostiwe

When I click a link within a page that is unknown to be a broken link, I am directed to a search engine other than my default. I've changed the the value for the location bar not to use it as a search even though I am not searching from there, just surfing. A sample link that creates this is: https://uk.search.yahoo.com/yhs/errorhandler?hsimp=yhse-001&hspart=CND&type=AFFF62550C25C4647BFF_s11_g_e&q=http://www.goldnopportunities.com/ goldnopportunities.com being the click through link on a previous page (not the search/location bar).

Hi, again :-), check it if the issue exist in firefox safe mode. If in safe mode is ok then probably the iWin3 extension you have is the problem and you have to remove it.

thank you

After a no fix in safe mode, I disabled iWin which failed. So I removed iWin yet search.yahoo persists. It's a petty annoyance; I'll just ignore it. Thanks for your patience and effort.  :)

Looks like the real culprit was better hidden, which Avast uncovered. This may well be the reason why an overriding SE bumped my default search engine. I will contact Avast for resolution of this problem.

The Yahoo search page could be due to your ISP as some ISP's have their own search pages for when you say mistype a url for example.

You sure those are in Firefox and not IE as BHO or Browser Helper Object is a IE thing.
