FF47.0.1 Win8.1 here I click on Tools (Alt+T)>Options>Search. Inside theres Default Search Engine, choose a new one.
Alternatively click the magnifying glass on the search, and at the bottom of the popup there is "Change Search Settings" that shortcuts to the menu above.
Thank you for sharing your browser configuration. You need to remove this extension that is overriding the built-in features:
Search and New Tab by Yahoo
You can view, disable, and often remove extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:
- Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Command+Shift+a)
- "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
In the left column, click Extensions. Then cast a critical eye over the list on the right side. All extensions are optional. If in doubt, disable.
Often a link will appear above at least one disabled extension to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links as the last step.
Can you regain control of the new tab page?
