A spam/malware site has gotten itself logged as one of my home pages, and I want to reset my home pages back to a default. The ordinary way to do that is to use the Tools menu, but you have to let the home pages open first in order to do it that way. I don't want this site to open again. It pops up very suspicious windows when it opens. How can I reset my home page from outside Firefox?

My suggestion would be to email yourself a link to the homepage you want to set as default. Click on the link and Firefox will open direct to that link, thus circumventing your current homepage.

You then should be able to get into tools and change the homepage default. I would recommend that you run a malware program to find the cookie or program that landed itself on your system. Ad-aware is a great program to use and is pretty thorough.
