    Search engine changed to Yahoo by default in Mac Safari

    Using the Mac safari for very long time but never faced this type of issue before. I am not sure whether itís a problem or a virus because whenever I try to change the search engine to google it just changes back to Yahoo as the default. Why is that? What should I do to make it work properly as before which shows only Google as the default in Mac Safari browser? If it is some virus issue in my Mac the how to solve it?

    Dear Friend...

    This problem is happen when there is any unwanted extension manager is enable in your browser setting.
    Now a days, even I am also facing the same issue. Every time I make Google my default search engine, it changes to some other pages.

    When I got fed up, I immediately uninstall the browser and downloaded its update version from the net.
    Same thing you can try.
    Just uninstall the previous version of Safari from your system preferences and then downloaded a fresh copy of its.
    Now install its setup and you can set your desired page which you want as search engine in your browser.

    Hope this info helps you,
    thank you...
