Somehow Alot has become my default homepage in firefox... I cannot remove it... I tired the obvious solution ---- go under tools - click add-on - and remove ---- but alas I cannot find the alot add-on (I also checked extensions).... Does anyone have any solutions for me???

Have you tried changing the homepage in the preferences dialog? If not see How to set the home page.

If you have tried changing the homepage but it keeps resetting to Alot, see How to fix preferences that won't save for possible causes and solutions.

Your computer is hijacked by alot, and they accumulate all of our browsing history, personal information, and trends. They sell all of your personal information. This is a total violation of privacy and outright piracy. I believe Mozilla is in on this piracy because it is an invisible "add on extension." Since it is invisible, you can't see it to remove it. Only Mozilla can get rid of alot, but Mozilla is not doing anything about it. After all, you got it automatically when you downloaded Mozilla 4.0.
