Firefox keeps coming up as my homepage and I have tried every suggestion listed under that problem. I never had this problem until two days ago

Posted

I have a gateway NV53A laptop. My homepage has always been http://www.yahoo.com/?ilc=1. Suddenly about 2 days ago, it started coming up as Mozilla.org and no matter what I do it will not stay as the yahoo.com homepage. I have followed every one of the directions listed for people who had the same kind of problem and it will fix it until I shut down or restart the computer. If I have to just get rid of Mozilla I will do that because I have now spent 2 days on this and I'm sick of it. I have done the thing with the preferences, the thing with setting up your homepage, the thing with getting rid of the pref.js and it just comes back and it still goes to firefox. I have right clicked the pref tab and it isn't locked. So if you can help me then that would be great but I have just about decided it is a lost cause.
