My normal home page doesn't come up any more. I tried to change it back to the normal page by right clicking on the FireFox icon on my desk top. then selecting Properties. When I did this, the address in the Target field was for FireFox, not for the page that displays. The page I don't want is for tracking packages shipped by UPS, USPS, Fed Ex, etc. The page I want is att.my.yahoo.com.

Other times, You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
