I need to stop Google from overriding Firefox Home default!
I have Firefox Home set as my default in Options. Firefox Home appears at start up. After the first search, Firefox Home is displaced by Google every time. I have deleted Chrome but Google still appears. How can I prevent Google from taking over my browser?
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:69.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/69.0
Under Options you can switch Firefox Home to open in new tabs.
To do this :
- Click the menu icon in your Firefox web browser
- Click Options
- On the left Panel click Home
- Under New Windows and click New tabs
- Choose Firefox Home(Default)
