Yahoo search has taken over Firefox

Somehow Yahoo has been added as the default search provider in Firefox. How can I get rid of it and go back to Google?

"You will need to change the default search engine for the address bar. Follow this post.
Alternatively you can set the keyword as mentioned in the post to the below value which is present in my browser:

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q="

You didn't state your OS. Under Windows, you may have to go to Control Panel >> Programs (or Add/Remove Programs) and remove the Yahoo! toolbar that way. Also, in Firefox click Tools >> Add-Ons and remove any Yahoo! plugins.
