firefox-yahooWe did mention about how Mozilla’s Firefox browser was to receive one-click search buttons in the upcoming build, not to forget how Firefox too, would incorporate Yahoo as the default search engine for the browser. Well, all of that waiting has finally paid off, so to speak, with the latest version of Firefox, known as Firefox 34, featuring Yahoo as its default search experience – at least for folks living in North America.

While changing the default search engine in Firefox to Yahoo is a snap, I cannot help but having this nagging feeling that most users would probably make the switch to Google in double quick time. It can be pretty difficult trying to break a habit, but for what it is worth, the Yahoo Search experience can be said to be specially tweaked for Firefox users, making it ideal for just about any search queries that you decide to run.

So far, Mozilla has enabled limited access to this particular version of Firefox in order to prevent the system from being overloaded, as approximately 10% of all Firefox users right now are able to see it. As for the rest of the updates, they will include an improved search bar for users over in the U.S., alongside the removal of SSL 3.0 due to the growing number of known security issues. If you are curious, the release notes for Firefox 34 can be found here.
