how do I keep my home page from changing itself?

Posted

After I set a home page and use my options tbs to set firefox to open to my homepage I can open firefox and it goes to that homepage, but my homepage resets itself to " moz-extension://6f44103d-d7f9-4f3b-907c-adbbf0575ba0/dynamicHomePage.html " which then yields a blank screen. How can I keep my home page staying as my home page?

A moz-extension:// page is created by an add-on, specifically, an extension.

You can view, disable, and often remove unwanted or unknown extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Command+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
  • type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return

In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions. Then cast a critical eye over the list on the right side. Any system extensions that Firefox installs on its own are hidden from this page, so everything listed here is your choice (and your responsibility) to manage. Anything suspicious? If in doubt, disable.

Sometimes a link will appear above a disabled extension to restart Firefox before the change takes effect. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links as the last step.

Any improvement?
