  1. Yahoo search engine


    Hi

    This probably, strictly speaking, a Windows 10 issue but, hopefully, someone out there can help me. Somehow I seem to have acquired a Yahoo search engine that keeps appearing in my Firefox browser. Can anyone tell me a foolproof way of deleting it? I have tried all the conventional ways but the program doesn't appear in the program list, nor does it appear when I do a search on the computer (via the bottom left hand panel). Any suggestions?

    :)

  3. How to remove yahoo on windows 10

    I believe they are trying to remove yahoo as default search engine.

    I need to do this also.

    I like bing but mistakenly have set my comp for yahoo whilst downloading chrome.

    I no longer need chrome as a browser but bing/edge now run yahoo as search engine. I get re-directed from bing to yahoo even after chrome has been uninstalled.

    i need to remove yahoo as the default search engine.

    i presume the other people wanted to set google as default search engine by removing bing and yahoo as default search engines.

  5. Thank you for the link. However, I've tried everything they say, including deleting the default engine (which, apparently, is Yahoo) and still the thing comes back every time I open a new tab!

  9. That's done it! I had to delete a prefs file (as per the Firefox trouble shooting guide).

    Thanks to everybody for their help.
