Google search engine results returned in Yahoo
« on: December 09, 2012, 09:30:53 AM »
I use the Google search engine to search the Internet.
In the last couple of days the days are suddenly returned by the Yahoo search engine. I suspect this is a Comodo setting because the results url is: http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=google%20help&ei=UTF-8&fr=chrf-comodo
How do I get rid of this setting? If I search using Google I want the results in Google. Same with Yahoo

In Firefox,
Type about:config into the address bar continue I will careful, I promise!
In the search field type keyword.url, right click on the result and choose reset.

In Internet Explorer,
Go Tools, Internet Options, Search Settings, choose your desired search provider and make default.
Alternatively go to the link below to add new search providers.

In Dragon/Chrome,
Go to Menu, Settings, Search, Manage search engines.
Hover over your desired search provider and make default.

Hi TimTDP,
Is this with the search bar or the address bar?

If it is with the address bar make sure the reset keyword is similar to below, http://www.google.com/search?q=%s
Also make sure the keyword.enabled is set to true.
