There could be a few reasons why your browser's search engine keeps changing back to Yahoo:
- Installed Software: Sometimes, when you install new software, it may come bundled with other programs, including browser extensions or add-ons that can change your default search engine. Check if you have recently installed any software that may have modified your browser settings.
- Malware or Adware: Malware or adware can sometimes change your browser settings and modify your search engine. Run a full virus scan on your computer to detect any malicious software and remove it.
- Browser Settings: It's also possible that your browser settings are set to automatically revert back to Yahoo as the default search engine. Check your browser's settings and ensure that you have selected the search engine of your choice as the default.
- Syncing: If you use multiple devices and have syncing enabled, changes made on one device can reflect on another. It's possible that the changes you made to your search engine settings on one device are being overwritten by the settings on another device that is synced.
To prevent Yahoo from being set as your default search engine, you can try the following steps:
- Open your browser's settings and go to the "Search Engine" or "Search Provider" section.
- Select the search engine you prefer as the default.
- If Yahoo is still present as an option, remove it from the list of search engines.
- Ensure that your browser settings are not set to automatically revert back to Yahoo as the default search engine.
If the issue persists, consider resetting your browser settings to their default values.

SOLVED: PHP Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.
