I have Safari 7.1.2. It has no cache listed.
I recently installed Firefox and that's when my search default problem began.
(Engine Default : Google but Yahoo appears instead.)
I uninstalled Firefox and deleted its folder.
After restart , Yahoo pops up again as search.
I appreciate any suggestions.
Thank you- Rowena
Rowena, open Safari, on the top bar click on "Safari" then "Preferences" then "Extensions" and look for Yahoo there. That's what I was referring to. Yahoo can be installed there and hijack anything you set anywhere else.
Are you sure you followed the steps? Safari didn't change that. Click on the Safari on the top bar, then Preferences and in the Preferences window Extensions. If you click on Extensions in the first drop down window, you get taken to Apple as you described. But you want Preferences.
Jake, Finally I found Extensions! (Thank you for being so ,so patient with me.)
In Extensions, I see "Extensions are created by third-party developers to customize and enhance your web experience." Then an ICON for searchtab 1.0 by Roby Strand (new tab extension ) with checked box "Enable seachtab" plus as "UNINSTALL" button. That's no mention of Yahoo or anything else.-Rowena
I uninstalled it, quit Safari, and did a restart: Safari opened with Google as directed in search engine.
It's not cocktail time here yet, but late the first toast goes to JAKE! Enjoy your day! Thank you, thank you thank you!!!-Rowena
Also thanks to other forum members who helped. You are appreciated.-R
