I am trying to restore my original my.yahoo.com page(s). Followed directions for restoring homepage in Firefox, but instead of just deleting the part of the target, I deleted the whole shortcut. What belongs in there?

Are you talking about the desktop shortcut or the home page setting in the browser?

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar. Type browser.startup.homepage

What is the value? Right-click and select Reset to restore its default value; about:home

Hi Jeanette, try this as the Target on the Shortcut tab:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Some users with older installations will have it under the 32-bit programs path. If the above doesn't find Firefox, try this instead:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Hi Jeanette, that was for a desktop shortcut, in case you were referring to editing your desktop shortcut.

Did you mean a shortcut on the new tab page? For that one, you can copy/paste the address from the address bar after you successfully open your My Yahoo page.
