How do I remove a website as a startup every time I invoke the Firefox browser
Every time I tap the Firefox browser to start a session one particular website that I went to a long time ago comes up as my startup screen I don't want this one I cannot find where to change the settings I would rather have my home screen as Google. Thank you to anyone who can help.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:26.0) Gecko/26.0 Firefox/26.0
I did a search and i think isnt possible change home page, see:
but you can create shortcuts on your home page:
Open a new window or tab. In the address bar, type About:Config.
If a warning screen comes up, press the Be Careful button.
This is where Firefox finds information it needs to run.
At the top of the screen is a search bar. Enter browser.newtab.url
and press enter. browser.newtab.url
tells Firefox what to show when a new tab is opened.
If you want, right click and select Modify. You can change the
about:home (Firefox default home page),
about:newtab (shows the sites most visited),
about:blank (a blank page),
or you can enter any web page you want.
The same instructions are used for the new window setting, listed as browser.startup.homepage.
Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.
You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
