Unwanted Homepage/Search Engine

more options

Hi There,

I have a problem relating to home page in Firefox browser. When i open the browser i see the following web page opening though i set my preferred webpage to open.

web site --> http://www.timesindia.xyz/?dt=07052016&aid=55115&uid=fe5f22ed-...

No unwanted extensions or add on(s) found in the settings. Also tried changing the settings of "browser.newtab.url" in "about:config" to preferred. But still problem persists.

Appreciate your help in resolving the issue.

Hi Philipp,

Thanks for the help. Yes my Firefox short cut got modified. Initially it didn't work upon clearing the unwanted website from the short cut name. But when i did it on other browsers as well... it worked fine!! :)

Thanks a ton. Finally i could keep away from those bothering sites!!
