I was not able to save all my preferences in firefox by about:config or by editing prefs.js/user.js. Yahoo always came back as the default search engine and start page when I restarted firefox. Disabling Ubuntu Firefox modifications 2.6 extension fixed this problem (and re-enabling it forces me back to yahoo). Is the ubuntu extension some kind of malware?
