Home Page Cannot Be Permanently Set
Something now fixes my home page as "http://www.searchqu.com/406" no matter what I do to make another web page my home. I've followed several of the standard ways to fix the home page at what I want. However, the next time I start Firefox, the home page is back to "searchqu." I've also looked for settings that prevent me from setting the home page. However, I can't find anything that controls it and the home page is always changed back to "searchqu." How do I get rid of "searchqu" and it's taking control of my home page?

Sorry I do not know the exact answer, but it does sound like some sort of malware or at least unintentionally installed software. See for instance
- this thread mentioning It is also linked to me being unable to change my homepage from searchqu.com
- is my firefox problem a result of malware

You will need to look for any likely unrecognized extensions to firefox or other unknown programs and consider disabling them, otherwise it is likely to be out and out malware and it is a case of scanning with multiple tools to discover the problem.
