Background Mozilla's popular internet browser, Firefox, announced that it is transitioning to Yahoo as its default search engine over incumbent Google. The move marks yet another deal by Firefox with alternatives to Google, including new search engine partnerships with Yandex in Russia and Baidu in China.
