browser directing to yahoo search

hi,
in my firefox sometime when i try to visit any site say google.com it automatically directs me to yahoo search.
it happens randomly but when this happens i cannot open any site by typing url because it directs me to yahoo search.
i found one way to avoid it. i restart firefox with add-ons disabled and it starts in safe mode and the problem disappears.
but i have to do it everytime.
is there any permanent way to get rid of this ?

Check your Firefox add-ons, extensions and plug-ins and disable or remove everything to do with Yahoo.

Firefox upgraded and auto changed everyone's search provider to yahoo. You need to change the default search provider to Google.
