My home page won't save

I save my home page but if I close the window and open a new tab it goes back to the original home page. But guess what it will save and if I open a new window with that on open it will go to my set homepage. If i start without Fire Fox then it will go to the original. I've done everything I could think of. Please help.

Does it change back to the built-in Firefox home page (about:home) or to some other home page? You have some add-ons associated with changing Firefox settings, so the specifics may be helpful in diagnosing that.

Hi,

I'm a member of the Searchnu Support Team. I'm here to help Smiley Happy

When the software was installed onto your pc it offered two basic installs, typical installation, which lists the add-on features such as searchnu default search, and Custom installation, which allows you to select the add-ons that you wish to install. There's no need to worry if you did the typical install - this isn't a virus, nor malware, and there's no need to Perform a virus scan against it.

If you wish to uninstall Searchnu Please follow the instructions below:

Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > look for windows searchnu toolbar > Uninstall

If you followed the instructions and still can't find a solution to the issue, please don't hesitate to let us know and we will walk you through it Smiley Happy

Thank you, The Searchnu Support Team

Re: My home page won't save

I have the exact same problem, and uninstalling the Searchnu toolbar worked. I stopped using Firefox for a while and went back to internet explorer for this very reason. Why would Firefox use this toolbar?? If not for this thread, I would have quit using it all together. This is a horrible feature, because there is no way to fix it without having uninstall this toolbar. Bad move, Firefox  Smiley Sad

Firefox does not offer this toolbar to anyone but it installs on itself. We're trying everything to help users who do not want the toolbar to uninstall it.
