On all other computers that I use Firefox on, when I type something into the address bar it will search google and give me the results, EXCEPT my own.

My ISP is Time Warner Cable, and they hijack my address bar searches to using a ton of yahoo's sponsored results and it is highly annoying.

I have went to the about:config, pulled up the keyword.url string and put in "http://www.google.com.my/search?q=" however this still does not fix my problem. I have even went to help>troubleshooting information> and then reset Firefox back to default, and then even did about:config and put in google for my keyword.url again. This still didn't work and Time Warner still hijacks my searches and uses yahoo... HELP PLEASE! Thanks
