when I open the desktop icon, it goes to another spot on my desktop called Y&U. I want to change it to go to the normal Mozilla firefox, but I cannot fix it.
caught small kids messing with my computer. went through and closed a BUNCH of windows without looking to see what the heck they were. Next time that I tried to use firefox, the icon that is on my desktop went to another part of my computer called Y&U. It is another thing in my desktop. I can type web addresses in part of it and they still come up, but I want to fix whatever is wrong with the icon, so that it goes back to opening mozilla firefox to begin with. I have examined all of the settings that I can think of, but haven't found anything that works. Changing the homepage doesn't work AT ALL, and am tired of hearing that suggestion. Please help...

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.
