I very simply wish to add my choice of search engine and get rid of the yahoo search engine. I am one of many who want this option. Very simple request. Each time I try to get another search engine loaded to offer an alternative to yahoo and them try to delete Yahoo, I can’t. Yahoo persists. There may be a deeply embedded nonintuitive , multistep procedure, but the examples given have failed. I do not want to spend hours trying, then join a forum to query for a solution to achieve what could be a very simple choice/selection to customize as I wish. Why not just allow us to delete Yahoo? If there is no listed search engine to default to, open an option labelled ‘Add your preferred search engine to be made your default’.
Is that so very difficult? Change the procedure to minimize the steps to change search engines. Do like other applications and offer some alternative so that Yahoo can easily be deleted and never return. Offer a tested working solution to remove Yahoo to quickly be found in the ‘Search’ option. Just make it easy. Make it easy in both the Chrome and Firefox based Comodo offerings. Easy customization, very easy procedures, rapid solutions found via the search option.
I implore you to read the book I suggested previously. It would provide you the necessary background to develop a far better, far more user friendly product.
I’m unable to replicate your issue with the same version of Ice Dragon on Windows 7 (64-bit). I added DuckDuckGo, restarted IceDragon, removed Yahoo as a Search Engine and restarted again. Yahoo was still gone from the list.
