Have you checked the settings for your homepage. Are these altering after you have set them ?

Have you any security or backup software installed that is likely to lock or restore Firefox settings rather than allow you to make changed ?

Hello John,

Sorry for the delay. Attached are two ScreenPrints. ScreenPrint 1 is the page that loads when I open FireFox. ScreenPrint 2 shows the homepage that should be loading.

Both pages load, but on different tabs, with #1 loading ahead of # 2, when, in fact, #1 should not be loading at all.

I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials on a Widows 7 box

That was it, and I'm the one that did it. My bad. Thanks very much.
