the following seems to provide the correct solution.
but, you will get a warning that NIntegrate is having trouble because the
integral is approximately zero.
i think that the code in the original posting may have applied the
Replacement Rule for the y before applying the D function.
exprGen=
Simplify[
With[{h1 = 1 + (yVar - xVar)^2,
h2 = 1 + (2/3 - xVar^2)^2},
With[{b = h2/(h1 + h2),f = xVar(1 - xVar)^2},
expr=(f*D[b, yVar])]]]
g[yArg_?NumberQ]:=
NIntegrate[(expr)/.yVar->yArg,{xVar,0,1}]
FindRoot[g[y] == 0, {y, 0.35, 0.45}]

Hi,
and what is with
h1 = 1 + (y - x)^2;
h2 = 1 + (2/3 - x^2)^2;
b = h2/(h1 + h2);
f = x(1 - x)^2;
s = f*D[b, y];
g[yy_?NumericQ] := NIntegrate[Evaluate[s /. y -> yy], {x, 0, 1}]
FindRoot[g[y] == 0, {y, 0.35, 0.45}]
Regards
Jens
