How do I get rid of 'start.search.us.com' always making itself my 'Home Page' on Firefox? And no, the obvious actions will not work.


I just installed WINDOWS 7. This problem is only on FireFoxm, not on IE or Chrome.

Hello Everyone,

This thread was recently brought to our attention. Anyone who would like to remove the Search.us.com toolbar, and reset their Firefox search engine, homepage, and tab settings to Firefox defaults can easily do so by downloading and running the free ResetBrowsers.exe utility from http://support.search.us.com/uninstall.php

Please contact us via the aforementioned page if you still need assistance.

You can also reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:

Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
