Windows 7: Can't get rid of Yahoo on new computer

Can't get rid of Yahoo on new computer

On my new computer, when I boot Firefox, Yahoo appears everywhere. I've deleted it from the Search menu but it still appears as the default search engine. How can I get rid of Yahoo for good?

Thanks,
Burt

Win 7? If this is not what you've already tried, in Firefox, go to Tools>Options>Search. Set you default search engine, and uncheck those you don't want to see displayed in the box below.

Hope this helps!

Did this multiple times. Yahoo keeps coming back as a default home screen.

Sorry. I thought you were talking about search engines. This link might give you another way to correct the problem:
Wrong home page opens when I start Firefox - How to fix | Firefox Help

If that doesn't work, a new download of Firefox might help.
Good luck!

Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to...
