On Firefox, but not on any other browser, when I search on Google, I get kicked over to Yahoo Search, even though I have Google listed as my search preference in Firefox.

How do I resolve this?

Hi, open the 3-bar menu > Add-ons > Extensions, then look for and remove/disable anything you don't recognise, especially anything with 'search' in its name. Restart Firefox afterwards.

Go to the 3-bar menu > Preferences > Search, and make sure there aren't any unusual Yahoo search engines - you can select then click the Remove button if necessary on anything dubious.

Look for any recently installed programs on your Mac that you don't recognise: What is search hijacking?.
