Solved: Firefox about:home search has changed to Yahoo?
My Firefox 4 "about:home" page no longer goes to Google when I search, instead it goes to Yahoo. The Google logo no longer appears by the search bar. When I put my search query into the "about:home" search bar, it comes up with Yahoo results instead of Google results.

I went into about:config and reset to default any instance of Yahoo that was bolded (meaning it had been changed), but my about:home search queries still revert back to Yahoo.

Is there any way to reset it back to the original Google search results?

Fixed it myself by resetting browser.startup.homepage_override.buildID and browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone in about:config and restarting Firefox. I think the other search fields I reset probably helped too.
