Is any one else having trouble with FF ? I cannot search using it. Getting a message finally that 'Yahoo will be right back-engineers are working quickly to resolve the issue'. Knowing my computer I am never sure if the problem is mine or someone else s. So any one having problems ??? Crying

Seems to me that the latest FF update came with Yahoo as the default search engine. I said "thanks, but no thanks" and had mine default to Google. And I've had no issues. Apparently it's a Yahoo thing?

Woffie, we had the same thing happen after an update, we had a bit of a time figuring out what the heck was going on, thankfully we are now back to Google search.

Linda, that's why I didn't have a problem searching, I used Google. Green Grin!

I think, if you go to the search box in the task bar, you can right click and select your search engine of choice. Not sure, may depend on what version of FF you're using.
