I was recently Upgraded to;

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6)
Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

It seems that Firefox has integrated, AVG-Yahoo, (components) with their browser, . .

I some how now have a Yahoo Browser, and it don't work !

I need to click my Mozilla/Google homepage icon to get my regular FF Google browser back eac time, . . how can I get rid of the Yahoo tool bar ?

Click the pencil icon between the big red Y and the searchbox and on the drop down menu, click Uninstall.

Thats a component of AVG. It's their 'Security Tool Bar' You can change the 'search engine' from Yahoo if you wish.

See: What is the AVG Security Toolbar and how can I disable it?

EDIT: To answer one question.

P.S what version of FF is that,


Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Thanks Animal,
I can use either browser Firefox or Yahoo, . . but the Yahoo seems to have taken over, it is the dominate browser of the two, it doesn't always get to where it is suppose to be going, . . but I noticed there may have been an add on or plug in since the upgrade and it did woork the last time I used it, . . I guess I chose it because of the AVG security issue, whats the down side to uninstalling it,

since it is only a matter of switching to my home page to get the GOOGLE Firefox search engine, but when I do this I guess I'm not getting the benefits of AVG security, . . I guess that is a little side deal that Yahoo made to get into the picture, . .
however I think that AVG act fairly well independent of other online and offline running systems. I mean am I enhancing its capabilities if I use the Yahoo-AVG integrated browser with Firefox ?

Huh? Wha...... Yahoo is not a browser. It is a search engine like Bing, Google and Ask.com etc. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera and Maxthon etc. are browsers. So I'm not exactly sure what you're saying, as you are mixing and matching browsers and search engines which do different things.
