    The Yahoo integration isn't all that bad. You have the option to show or hide the toolbar, or disable them, or remove them altogether.However, networking seems to go through the roof, it's not performance optimized by any means; very slow!Yahoo has about 50 'about:config' entries you may want to check on.You can still manage search engines as before. If you have a standard FirefoxSetup.exe I would hold on to it for the time being.Other than that it's pretty normal, but I'm not finished with it yet. Going to dig deeper, I will post my findings.Attachment 8741

    FF34 Search Box Issues

    If you are having problems with the Search box in FF34, try this:
    • Type about:config in the address bar to open the config page
    • Click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button
    • Search for
    • Set the value to false (I'd already toggled it before I took the screenshot)
