What possible difference could it make to Ubuntu whether Firefox is shipped with either Google or Yahoo since it is installed with Ubuntu?  What other kinds of control does Google have over Firefox if they can control distribution rights?  

Besides, with or without agreement, can't anyone, whether a person in fact or on paper, distribute Firefox since it's open source?   Maybe Yahoo finally realized which is the better browser.  Miracles are rare but they do happen.

Firefox ships with Google as the default search engine.  Ubuntu's
changing that to ship with Yahoo! instead.  I doubt it's even a source
change.  It's a settings change.

Don't worry.  You can switch it back.
