setting google as my homepage keeps getting blocked


I have been trying to set Google as my homepage but keep getting a message that the changing of my homepage is being blocked. The message flashes up in the bottom right of my monitor but disappears again so quickly, I cannot get a good look at it. It is most frustrating not being able to effect the change.

Where are you trying to reset your Homepage? In Firefox or Internet Options?


Question owner

In Firefox. My default homepage is iMesh which I want to change. I drag the google icon into the homepage box. I get a message asking whether or not I want to set this as my homepage. I click yes. Google becomes my homepage until I exit Firefox, then a window briefly pops up on the bottom right of my monitor to say the setting of a new homepage has been blocked. When I next go into Firefox, I find iMesh once again as my homepage. I am trying to find out how to get rid of this blocking as I do not want iMesh as my homepage
