    i installed the "new" yahoo messenger and now firefox is running slower than before and everything on firefox is set to something yahoo.

    like before when i highlight something, i would right click and "search web for" and it would search it in google. now when i do the same thing, it opens a yahoo advance search page but not actually search for anything.

    reinstalling firefox does not change it. i also can't get the old messenger back.

    anyone know how to fix it so it will search with google and not with yahoo?

    When you go to d/l or install the yahoo, make sure you pay attention, they do give you the option not to install the integrated stuff into your browser. I just recently d/l the latest and am having no trouble or changes to my firefox.

    Did you uninstall all the yahoo stuff? You can also d/l a program called hijack this and you can use it to uninstall browser integrated yahoo crap.

    Uninstall everything that has to do with Yahoo messenger... then reinstall firefox... then reinstall Yahoo Messenger, but don't use the typical install! Instead you need to do a custom install and uncheck all the extra crap they put in there.
