When I log into Firefox I get an AMAZON screen that I have difficulty using and am unable to get rid of it. Is this the new Firefox ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The official version from Mozilla doesn't use Amazon for the homepage. But an Amazon search engine is included with Firefox, and if Amazon is selected in the Search Bar, it will be the Search engine used on the default about:home homepage.
I have the same or similar problem. My 'Startup' homepage is Bing but when I select a 'open new tab' command Amazon loads up in the tab and I can't change the settings back to 'show thumbnails'. This is very annoying, I hate it when companies hijack users personal settings to promote their stuff, and I can't get it back again... very rude. very bm. illegal too I think...
