how do i get rid of ads on Firfox home page ( most current version is installed and all extendsions disabled)?
ads on FireFox home page started a month or two ago...
some are very offensive (a gun pointing at me) and all are highly distracting/flashing things and such....
I emptied /cleared my Cache today..kept in only a few I knew..did the clean out manually selecting..
My version is current 18.0.1 as of a week or two ago..
and there were only 2 Extensions listed and both are disabled..
The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
