Do you use a toolbar/extension that modifies the setting? Try closing Firefox and launching the browser in "safe mode" (you'll find the option in the Start Menu).

There is an AVG toolbar
It has a search feeld which uses yahoo
Maby that causes the problem

but... can I switch of that thing without loosing the AVG antivirus security

The avg addon – by my knowledge – only changes search engine result pages, thus you can switch off that addon without any consequences, as far as I know.
