AVG and Yahoo Stole my Firefox URL search

avg stole my search

Talk about something that ticks you off….

When you install AVG antivirus it asks to install a yahoo toolbar and default yahoo as the search engine.

Want to fix it?

Type about:config in the address bar and hit return – it will say ‘Here be dragons!’ but continue.

Then enter ‘yahoo’ in the filter, hit return and you’ll see ‘keyword.URL’. Right-click on that and select ‘Reset’.
