Yahoo seems to have coopted duckduckgo. I made ddg my home page and also my preferred search engine, BUT when I type in a search it instantly switches to yahoo search. Once this happens I can't even go back to the ddg page. How do I stop this from happening.?

I had the same problem when I downloaded firefox. It used yahoo search and yahoo.com was my startpage... when I went to the settings at the add-ons it had something called glassbottle, I deleted it and yahoo was gone. I suggest going to the add-ons or if your using windows : contol panel - programs and delete anything suspicious. It would be better if you told me what OS and browser you are using if I haven't satisfied you.
