Searching on Yahoo even with Google set as default

  • my common search engin is google but when i try to search something opera search it in yahoo and it started when i download google chrome and it didn't fix when i uninstall it i don't know what to do

  • @hasiok So your default search engine is Google but when you type something in address bar to do a search, you get results on Yahoo?

  • @leocg yes 😞

  • @hasiok Strange. Did you check if Google is really your default search engine? When you start typing something to do a search, what logo/favicon shows up in the left of address bar?

  • @leocg logo of google, and if i change a search engine to something else like bing it works (i mean bing works not google)

  • I have the same issue. Google is selected as my defualt browser but it still searches in Yahoo. Even when I type in the search bar at the top of the "Speed Dial" page, which has the Google Icon next to it it still searches in Yahoo. I've tried chaning it back and forth but no luck.

    I've also noticed something else strange. Whenever I search something it closes the tab and opens another tab to the left of the previous tab (if I have multiple open). Idk if this is in some way related.

  • After updating Opera GX, whenever i use the search bar it searches using Yahoo instead of Google, despide Google being set as the default search engine. In addition, going to and searching from there takes me to a Yahoo result page. Resetting the Opera settings fixed the issue, however the issue has returned in less than a week.

  • Any extensions? By itself, Opera couldn't be sending searches from Google's homepage to Yahoo, so either an extension or external program is doing it.
