After windows 7 starts and I start Firefox 26.0 my homepage is only a '/' (as in http:///) then when i restart Firefox my homepage is back. I've tried disabling add-ons and installing a fresh Firefox too. I've checked for spy ware and used ccleaner. Does anyone know what could cause this?

hi, good news it has just remembered my homepage on startup! not sure why,maybe the ff reset did work after all. it's been so annoying,much appreciate all your help, thanks and have a nice weekend, gary.

Sounds good. When I was asking about your programs, I had meant in the computer. But it look okay and thats all that counts. One last thing;


It’s very sad, but many of the software down-loaders / installers will trick you into installing not only their program, but other programs as well. You have heard of the fine print in shady contracts, right? Well, some installers you need to look at the itsy bitsy teeny weeny fine print. You are thinking you are giving the installer permission to install the program you want by using the recommended option. But if you use the Manual Option Instead, you discover all kinds of stuff that you do not even know what it is or what it does. From now on, everyone needs to Use The Manual Option to put a stop to this.
