I can still use Yandex (and mail.ru) extentions in Firefox. So I realy dont know whats the problem here. Yandex certainly is a very good search engine (and mailprovider).

Anyway...I am still using it. If you want i can put screenshots in here to proof it...but actualy I dont care.

How about that? I did not know they both had extensions. They are still listed in the Firefox Browser Add-ons site. Basic proof as I said earlier this is a PR move to virtue signal with the rest anti Russia crowd. that and it did not remove Yandex from my search.

I am using Yandex as my default search engine. It was Brave but search result are limited. I agree that Yandex is a very good search engine.

Well, the Release Notes from Firefox for version 98.0.1 say this:
Quote:
Yandex and Mail.ru have been removed as optional search providers in the drop-down search menu in Firefox. If you previously installed a customized version of Firefox with Yandex or Mail.ru, offered through partner distribution channels, this release removes those customizations, including add-ons and default bookmarks. Where applicable, your browser will revert back to default settings, as offered by Mozilla. All other releases of Firefox remain unaffected by the change.

That may be what the release states; however, that is not what I observed. My Yandex search was not removed.
