Home page is Start.Me. When I start Firefox I get a search box on the start.me page that defaults to Google. I want Startpage.

I want the default search engine in the search block on the Start.me page to be Startpage, not Google. Everytime I restart FireFox it resets to Google even though the default search engine for bot Start.me and Firefox are set to Startpage.

If I start a session and change the search box to Startpage it stays that way until I close and restart FireFox, then it comes up as Google again.

If I log in to my Start.me account it changes to Startpage but again if I close FF and restart it defaults back to Google.

The serach engine on the FireFox tool bar is Startpage, or whatever I select.

Hey, try going to "about:config" on your url address. And search for "browser.startup.homepage" make sure that it matches the website you desire.
