Google Search, Yahoo Results In Firefox, Edge

I don't have Yahoo as a Search choice in Firefox, which is what I use 99% of the time. I have Google as the default search engine and I've disabled all of the others but when I search Yahoo results show up. It does it in Edge but not Opera or IE. Even if I go to Google.com and search Yahoo results are shown. I've searched for this problem and I've tried a couple of the suggestions but nothing works. Does anybody have a solution to this problem? It is really pissing me off. TIA

I believe there is a Yahoo "Search helper" installed with Java updates if you did not uncheck the box. Might start there.

You guessed it. I just installed Java a few days ago and I am usually very careful to uncheck all software that I don't want but I missed that one. I'm searching now for Search.Yahoo and when I find it I'll delete it. Assholes!

I also found Search.Yahoo in the Registry as well as lots of other Yahoo settings. They are now dead and gone.
