How to remove/change automatic Yahoo! search from the Firefox ADDRESS bar?
This was making me crazy, but not enough to pay a Yahoo! expert to solve it for $18. I searched Google: "in Firefox address bar yahoo comes up with results how to change it." …and VIOLA! an answer that works.
I have never had any Yahoo add-ons, that I was aware of and it seems to have sneaked in somehow. I'm a member of a few Yahoo groups, but hadn't noticed any "tools" installed, except this one annoying thing. There was nothing in my add-ons or plug-ins.
This is only for Firefox, as that seems to have the issue:
Step 1: Open a new Firefox browser window.
Step 2: Type about:config in the search field and press Enter.
Step 3: Click the "I Will Be Careful" button if necessary.
Step 4: Scroll to find a configuration key titled: keyword.URL
Step 5: Select "keyword.URL" and right-click, then hit "Reset" from the drop-down menu.
