Re: Can't change my home page, each time I change it goes to findamos.com

according to entries on other forums this is occuring when a program called bProtector.exe is running on your pc. download & run hijackthis and fix the service entry for this piece of software to get rid of the problem...

Go to About:config and type findamos, then select every think with this word(findamos) and select reset. Then go back to How to set the home page and set your homepage of your choice.

also have a look at the How to fix preferences that won't save troubleshooting article (especially the section about user.js if the homepage is the only setting that won't stay after a restart of the browser)

Some security software has virtualization features that can cause problems by protecting and restoring files in the Firefox profile folder.

then you should scan your pc for malware, see Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware.
