Question owner

http://rr.com/

The problem is when I go to the control panel, to internet properties and to home page the tab that says use current I cannot click on it. Use default and use blank are available to click on but use current is not a option.

I clicked on the road runner icon and dragged it to the home icon and as long as that page is open the home icon will bring me back to road runner.

But when I close that page and bring another up it loses roadrunner as the homepage and goes back to the Firefox page I posted.

I tried taking a screen shot but the web address should work.

That's where you set the Homepage for Internet Explorer, it ha no affect on the Homepage in Firefox.

Please read the article that I hyperlinked, so you can learn how to set your Homepage in Firefox.

Thanks for the help but it is still not working. I am not going to mess with it anymore I don't have the time.

When ever I open a page it will be easier to just go to roadrunner and save it as the homepage.

You can open the page that you want to set as the home page in a tab and drag the tab from the Tab bar on the Home button in the Navigation toolbar to set the home page in Firefox.

no that only works as long as the page is open. When I close the page(click on the x in the top right corner of the page) and bring a new page up it does not save the new home page but goes back to

http://www.google.com/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official

and if I go into control panel to internet options I can not click on use current website as home.
