Firefox keeps changing my home page. How can I stop this? I have set my home page numerous times according to directions, which is AOL


I am runing XP. I will drag the AOL icon to the home page button and it is set. Then in a few hours the Firefox web page and google search engine becomes the home page. I am about ready to remove it and stick with Internet Explorer.

I'm afraid that Firefox does not natively behave this way. If the issue doesn't happen in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode, please see Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems.
