Mozilla always starts with ueep.com as home page and deafult browser. I cannot change it. Please, help.
I tried to fix it using online solutions, but nothing worked.
Additional System Details
- Google Update
- Shockwave Flash 11.7 r700
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.03
- Next Generation Java Plug-in 10.21.2 for Mozilla browsers
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0
hello, if your manual changes don't 'stick' after a restart of the browser, please look out for any suspicious extensions (like 3rd-party-toolbars or things you have not installed intentionally) presently installed under firefox/tools > addons > extensions or the programs section of the windows control panel and remove those entries.
in case this doesn't solve the issue please try this: go to firefox > help > troubleshooting information > profile folder - "show folder", then a new window will open up. in this window look out for a file named user.js (it might be used to overwrite your custom settings). in case it is present , delete or rename this file and restart firefox afterwards.
You can also check the target field in the Firefox desktop shortcut via the Properties in the right-click context menu.
I tried. Nothing worked. I guess that is beacuse Addware like this one can change their names. Every time I change settings to normal and restart computer, ueep.com is there again!
Does anything come up if the open the about:config page and type ueep in the Search bar at the top of this page?

I change settings in about:config and make Google my deafult search engine (replace it with https://www.google.ba/search?q=) , but when I restart computer - all changes that are made dissapear and once again I have ueep.com as my home page, search engine etc.
could you go to firefox > help > troubleshooting information, copy the contents of that page and paste them here into a reply on the forum? this might give us a clue what is going on...
