Hello. Every time I restart Firefox, my homepage keeps resetting to: "https://search.yahoo.com/?type=926458&fr=spigot-yhp-ff|www.google.com"

I've gone through all the suggested solutions, including checking the target of the shortcut, resetting firefox, uninstalling everything (including in the local folder) and reinstalling, attempting to modify the pref.js file, deleting the pref.js file, and going to about:config and trying to modify the homepage from there. I don't have a user.js file. Nothing works. If I delete the pref.js file, it immediately pops back up with just the browser homepage redirect line. Every time I exit and restart - yahoo comes back. I've spent over an hour trying to fix this nonsense. HELP!!!! :-(

See:


You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar and search for prefs that refer to spigot. You can reset user set (bold) prefs via the right-click context menu to the default value.

You can check for recently installed suspicious or unknown extensions.


Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.

Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
