Cannot change homepage from http://search.bearshare.com ever since downloading BearShare.

Posted

I downloaded BearShare last week and it changed my homepage to http://search.bearshare.com. Now, I cannot change this. Whenever I go into settings to change it, then save, it will change it until I close my browser and open it again, then it goes right back to http://search.bearshare.com.
