Firefox will not save my preferred home page.

Posted

I have tried dragging the icon directly to the left of hte web address to the home button, and I have tried changing it in the tools/options window. Both of those will work for the current setting, but when I close firefox and open a new window later, it goes back to the homepage I'm trying to remove. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
