    not the boxon the right, the address bar, i used to be able to type OSNN and it would know to go here, now when i type osnn it takes me to damn YAHOO..i hate yahoo

    fixed


    1. In the Firefox address bar, type about:config
    2. Then, in the Filter box at the top type keyword
    3. This should show up a Preference Name called keyword.url. Right-click on this and select Modify

    Type in address bar "about:config".

    Search for "browser.search.defaultenginename"

    Change it to "Google" and restart your browser.
