How to change firefox start up page to google

Posted

My start up page is Firefox but then i type something in that box it transfers me to ask.com it was used to be Google.com. how do i change it back?

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).


You can open the about:config page via the location bar and do a search for ask.com via the Filter at the top of the about:config page.
You can reset all ask.com related prefs that appear bold (user set) via the right-click context menu to their default values.
