I'm using Ubuntu 16.04.
I use the chromium browser and one feature it has is that whenever you type something in the address bar and hit enter (and is not a web address) you are redirected to a google search with the same search string.
These days, something strange has been happening,
Whenever I enter something to be searched on google in the address bar, yahoo is used instead. I'll then go and check in the settings and find that google is still the default search engine, but if I were to put a search string in the address bar, it uses yahoo search to look for the results.
I notice that this only happens after using the browser for a while. If I clear all history and start the browser all over again, I get back to using google searches (for a while at least).
Can someone tell me what is going on?
