Not anymore the new Firefox policy with Yahoo has forced it to change settings for all versions now . You can change the default but it will turn back to Yahoo

What the fuck are you smoking?

If you specified a default search engine yourself you won't even see it switch to Yahoo after the update.
>>
>>45589406
it's a new feature and sometimes new features have bugs.

that being said, haven't had the problem myself

besides, you should be using ddg anyways...... unless you're a google shill

but you "use firefox", so that can't be true, right?

oh wait...
you're just a google employee pretending to be a firefox user and bring more of /g/ to your botnet, because you know that if you convert /g/ neckbeards here, everyone will want to switch.

Well I'm not fucking budging.

Firefox is forcing the Yahoo botnet


>>45589427
Yeah if you did do that the settings will go back to Yahoo . This a recent problem for the past 2-3 days with users complaining about this and changing the settings does nothing. Does it momentarily but it goes back to Yahoo

Difference between a bug and being forced into something ? I mean the 'bug' is being present in all versions

The deal represents the most significant partnership for Yahoo in five years. As part of this partnership, Yahoo will introduce an enhanced search experience for U.S. Firefox users which is scheduled to launch in December 2014. It features a clean, modern and immersive design that reflects input from the Mozilla team.

But Yahoo is terrible though when it comes to searching anything. DuckduckGo is shit as well since it barely finds anything
>>
>>45589570

I've been using it now solid for maybe 2 years? Very rarely ran into issues, in fact the only issues I've ever had with it have been within the last 6 months and they were very minor. It's a testing build at the end of the day, it's to be used merely for that.

Nightly releases are unstable versions? Who the hell wants a broken web browser?

Well then we're two.

What a bunch of crock shit the stable version of Nightly serve for testing purposes. They are not meant for mainstream use in the first place and the only people who do use them are fedora fags
>>
>>45589602
>You do know that Firefox has been very shit recently?

My experience tells otherwise, and since I'm not only brighter, but also more handsome than you, your opinion is irrelevant.

Oh, and the answer is "everyone who has balls".

Now go, sin no more, your troll-fu has been proved weak.
>>
>>45589616

I've not had enough problems with it to not use it as my default. Updates daily, you get all the new features first and I've not really found it any less reliable than the public releases. The minute it does start going to shit then yeah I'll use Firefox again.

The only one who has the problem in this thread is the faggot OP.

Nightly builds are not "broken". I'm using Nightly right now with multi-process enabled and I don't have any major issues.

Features? What year is this? Firefox development team has been focusing more on the skin changes than anything else noteworthy. But it sure makes a broken web browser

I switched to chromium when 34 came. I switched the new start engine to startpage and disabled all the others. It worked at first but then I searched something and it used yahoo instead, even though i had it unchecked! That was a severe security and privacy vulnerability, so I uninstalled immediately. I now use chromium with all the "privacy" options disabled. Just werks.

There is an addon on Firefox that does more or less the same as uMatrix: Policeman

NoScript is far better than uMatrix in all the functions that both do, and has some extra protection that chrome addons or browser cant give you.

Adblock Edge has higher blocking capabilities than uBlock (developer admitted), but it consumes far more memory, thats why I like uBlock more than ABE. I give you that one

Tampermonkey=Greasemonkey
