how do i get rid of yahoo as home page


I just updated to Firefox 4beta. I can't load igoogle, it freezes. I don't want Yahoo as my homepage and I can't get rid of it. I have no tool bar for my bookmarks. I don't think I like this new Firefox. I will use Internet Explorer until I hear back from you. I want the old Firefox back.

I have the same problem....Yahoo is a no better than a virus in my book. Unfortunately the usual solution as outlined doesn't work. My homepage is set for igoogle in options but the Yahoo page seems to over-ride it
