Hi - hope someone can help with this, I've been having an issue over the last few days where Firefox on my PC always startsup with the Microsoft homepage (https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/). It's not a massive inconvenience but a bit puzzling, and I'd like to get to the bottom of why this is happening.
It's a custom build PC, quite bare-bones, and Firefox has been running fine for over a year. I had some notifications from Windows Defender about a Trojan, Foretype.A!ml - this has been quarantined and deleted as far as I can tell. Not sure how relevant this is, but the Firefox problem started at around the same time, which worries me.
What I've tried:
1) Restore homepage
2) Checked the 'target' of the Firefox icon
3) Uninstalled & reinstalled Firefox
4) Used 'about:config' and edited the <browser.startup.page> to zero, and <browser.startup.homepage> is 'about:home'
5) Used the command line 'firefox -ProfileManager', tried a clean profile.
None of this seems to work. So... any ideas? Thanks in advance! Chris
