My home page will not stay the way I want eventhough I have changed it the way it says about 20 times. It will keep going back to a search page.

My home page will not stay as my home page. As soon as I close out and open firefox again it goes back to a search page like google, but its not google. Its been happening for about 5 days now and its really frustrating.

You will have to change the Home Page to the page your want to display. In order to do so, follow the steps below:

  • Go to Options (i.e. \Firefox\Options\Options);
  • Go to the General tab;
  • Under Start-up - enter the URL in the Home Page URL box.

Also, make sure that you have chosen "Show my Home Page" under "When Firefox Starts" (use the drop down arrow).

Hope this helps!

I have gone through all of the above steps many times, ensuring that I have done everything correctly, but still my homepage will not return to the one I have selected. When reopening, a new firefox session, it repeatedly reverts to a search page!

It has only started doing this quite recently, and I can't recall an event, or any changes that might be causing it to make this happen. it is a most irritating and annoying happening, please can anyone suggest a fix?

I seem to be having the same problem at jojofrg. my homepage constantly keeps changing to this search engine, babylon, that I have never used or heard of before today. My husband was having problems with the computer last night, he tried to open widows media player and incredimail and possibly some other junk automatically downloaded. Now no matter how many times I do the things mentioned above the home page still switches back to that stupid search engine every few minutes!
