Update: Firefox 34 seeks user OK before changing search to Yahoo

Gregg Keizer | Dec. 2, 2014
Browser update also includes other search improvements.

Firefox 34 also includes a new search toolset that allows on-the-fly, single-use changes of search engines and provides an enhanced list of suggested searches. Users can also add additional search engines to the pre-set list, which range from Amazon and Bing to Twitter and Wikipedia.

According to Web analytics company Net Applications, Firefox accounted for a 13.9% user share of all browsers last month, a decline of three-tenths of a percentage point, its smallest share in almost eight years. In the last 12 months, Firefox has shed 26% of its user share as rivals Chrome (from Google) and Internet Explorer (Microsoft) have gained 38% and 0.5%, respectively in that same period.

Firefox 34 can be downloaded from Mozilla's website for Windows, OS X and Linux. Existing users' copies will be automatically updated in most cases.
