I have attempted to change my home page a number of times but it keeps going back to a Bing/Google search page (set up by eSnips). Where do I got to get rid of this home page that keeps poping up every time I open Firefox?

Posted

I had downloaded something from eSnips and likely I missed the "set my home page" check box. So when I opened Firefox, I ended up with this eSnips "Google/ Bing" search page.

Additional System Details

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

This started when...

Downloaded software from eSnips. I believe it was an update.

The troublesome extension could be something you can disable in Tools --> Addons --> Extensions panel, then you can restart Firefox and see if anything will change the home page you set.

You may want to try to disable them all and then re-enable one by one until the issue appears. Please see more details here: Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems.

Hi. Thanks. I did that last night and isolated the problem and disabled the app. It took awhile to find it. The App is "Personas Interactive" I think it was something to do with themes and colours... what that has to do with iSnips I'm not sure but its gone. I've also deleted the iSnips program. Won't trust them again.

I appreciate the help again thank you.

After trying many of the suggestions found online I found that the only thing that worked was to completely uninstall firefox and re-install it again!

There's no need of installing any toolbars or extensions to revert to default Firefox homepage.

Restore the default home page

Check and tell if its working.
