My search engin- google- has been hijacked.
« on: March 25, 2020, 03:55:13 PM »
A business website has highjacked my search engine. In options Google is set as my default search engine. When I click  the Google icon in the task bar all I can get is Yahoo. Yahoo is not set in options as default or alternate search engines. How can I get rid of it?
Thanks, Richard

Excuse me.  It's the Firefox icon I use. Results are as described.
