I have Start my search start as soon as I open Firefox. I ran malwarebytes to get rid of unwanted programs, and this cleared this particularly annoying bar from starting in all browsers except Firefox (the browser I use most!). I reset MSN as my homepage, and set my homepage to open when I start Firefox. Guess what? When I open Firefox, Start my search opens! MSN is still my home page, but despite followong all the instructions from Start my search I CANNOT get rid of it. Can anyone help please!

Thank you for your help. The only way I could get rid of it, after going through all your suggestions was to uninstall firefox, delete every file and folder I could find to do withe My stare search on my hard drive, then reinstall firefox. The files and folders were not easy to delete either!!!

Thanks again
