    context menu.jpg

    I use Firefox 14.
    I installed yahoo messenger and have since un-instaled it.
    My home page is set to yahoo.com, I know that I can reset that back to my old homepage. Google Advanced Search
    I don't know how to change the right-hand context menu back from "search yahoo" to "search google" See pic below on right hand side.
    Please can someone help me as I prefer google search engine to yahoo.

    It changes when you change the Search Bar search engine

    Click the little yahoo icon in the search box (there is a little downward arrow there) and you should get a list of search providers. Choose the one you want and it will be the default.

    Thank you guys.
    I changed the drop down arrow to google, and "search google" is now showing in my context menu, however, Yahoo is also still showing.
    It is also showing in my menu bar.
    Please could you tell me how to get rid of yahoo from my menu bar and context menu?
    Sorry for the extra questions, but thanks.

    To get rid of yahoo, click the further right box on your screen, right click, and scroll the whole screen. Right click again and select 'delete all'

    Did you mean to get rid of the yahoo search engine from the list of engines in the box upper right?
    I did this, and re started firefox but yahoo is still in my menu bar and context menu?

    Thank you

    Have you got some Yahoo add-on running?

    (Tools - Add-ons then try clicking 'disable' if you find something Yahoo-ish)
