Why does "" come up as my home page?

Every time I go to the internet, this search page comes up. Every time I am on the internet and want to go to the home page and click on the home icon it still goes to this page. My info on my computer Control panel has the correct info. Please help.

Re: Why does "" come up as my home page?

Try to use the SearchReset extension to reset some preferences to the default values.

Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

There are other things that need your attention.

Your system details list shows two Flash plugins and you should remove the older version
