This (see screenshot) keeps popping up while I am browsing. Why? How can I stop it?

 

FWIW: My desktop pc uses XP. My browser is Firefox. I do not use (or want) Yahoo Search.

 

Thanks for any help here.   ....batpark

Hello batpark,

 

If you dont want yahoo and you need google as your default search engine then,

 

To set google as default search Engine in firefox,

 

Open Firefox.
In the small search bar in the top right of your browser, click the magnifying glass .
Click Change Search Settings.
Under "Default Search Engine," select Google.

 

still you get unwanted pop-ups. i think it is virus issue.

 

Start new topic here.

 

Details here.
