I am trying to change my home page, but can not type anything in because boxes are grayed out. TY

This can happen if you have installed an extension that takes over the Home and/or New Tab page. There is usually a notice on the "Options/Preferences -> Home" page what extension is involved. In such a case you need to check the Options/Preferences of this extension to set the Home and New Tab pages.
