    I'm using Firefox 72.02 on a mid 2011 27" 2.7GHz i5, 10.13.

    Google search is being replaced by Yahoo. Where are the gremlins to delete?

    Thanks.

    Ian: The instructions at that link don't work for me. My 3 bar menu does not show options.

    Hmmm. Fixed now. The Search tab in Firefox preferences now has a drop menu showing Google as the default search engine.

    Previously, where it said "This is your default search engine blah blah", there was no drop menu showing or allowing you to choose any search engine.

    The only change I made was to disable safe search in the addons selection of the 3 bar menu. But I see it has been enabled again.

    But thank God, the yahoo search is gone,
