Since I installed version 9 of firefox, I can't change my default page when I bring up Forefox. I change it in the tools, but it's not kept. What can I do to remedy this?

Can't get my default page to come up when bringing up firefox. Change it using tools and always comes back with old one. Using Windows 7 on this computer. What did I do wrong?

The other computer always has 2 pages coming up, one is my page and the other is informing me that I updated to version 9. Using Windows XP on this computer. How can I get rid of the Mozila page?

Hi Brian,

You should look at this article about that specific issue and the article Preferences not saved. These should give you all the information you need!

If that doesn't work:

  1. Type about:config in the address bar
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise if prompted
  3. In the Filter input field type startup
  4. Double click on startup.homepage_override_url
  5. Delete the text string and click OK
  6. Close Firefox and reopen the window to verify that it has worked.

Hopefully this helps!
