How can I get rid of whatever hijacked my Firefox 12 home page and substituted a "Bank of America" login page? I have reset my home page in Options, but that doesn't help. I suspect there is a rogue entry in my Windows Vista Registry. I tried to get rid of it with several antivirus programs, including MS Security Essentials, Avast, Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes, but none removed the offending hijacker. Help would be appreciated.

for a likely solution see the How to fix preferences that won't save help article, especially the part about the user.js file in your profile folder!

Madperson: You were correct: the offending line of code was in the user.js file. After deleting it, the problem was solved. Many, many thanks!

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Basic Troubleshooting: Make a new profile":

There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions & Plugins" in case there are still problems.

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
