Why does my search keep changing to Yahoo?

Kuphostiwe

About once a week, my default browser search changes itself to Yahoo and I have to go into Preferences and manually change it back to Duck Duck Go. I have tried all the suggestions in the other answers to this question. I do not have any Yahoo extensions or anything suspicious. I have searched my entire computer for "Yahoo" and find nothing. I do not have a folder for Firefox, or any preferences file, only the application itself. I am on a Mac so Windows answers don't help me.

Malwarebytes did find a few things and I removed them. Time will tell if this solves the Firefox problem. Thanks!
