A University of Texas at Austin study found that people who work from home “add five to seven hours to their workweek compared with those who work exclusively at the office.” A Bureau of Labor Statistics study found that working remotely “seems to boost productivity, decrease absenteeism and increase retention.”

A Cisco study found that the company achieved “new levels of efficiency and effectiveness” after allowing people to work remotely. The study found that 60% of the time saved by telecommuting is spent working.

Sure, there are slackers and many suspect that what Mayer really wants is to drive away dead wood that’s been phoning it in for years. If some valued employees are driven away in the process, so what? The Yahoo workforce is too big anyway. But is this the right way to go about it? Isn’t it management’s responsibility to keep track of telecommuters’ productivity and deal with underperformers one by one? Already there is talk of Silicon Valley competitors using flexible schedules as bait to recruit Yahoo’s best and brightest.

Firefox is insisting upon using AVG Yahoo as its search, using its homepage, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it.

Google works as usual from the search bar in the top right corner, though.

Kinda sounds like you have AVG installed.

#4 franco cbi at 2:28 pm on Feb 26, 2013

I'm not finding any trace of it in Install/Uninstall, Program Files or Task Manager.

Searching from the Firefox homepage goes to us.yhs.search.yahoo.com.

But as I noted earlier, searching from the search bar in the top right goes to Google as it should. So I just use this search bar by default.

What's your homepage setting in Preferences?

#6 franco cbi at 5:30 pm on Feb 26, 2013

"Mozilla Firefox Home Page".

It's probably in your registry. The only cure is to set it on fire and get an iPad.

#8 franco cbi at 5:41 pm on Feb 26, 2013

It seems to have happened two Firefox updates ago.

#9 packen at 8:24 pm on Feb 26, 2013

#8 franco cbi: Your computer has been infected with an AVG virus.

#10 franco cbi at 8:29 pm on Feb 26, 2013

Yeah, I had the same problem with Norton.
