I have read through the user threads and tried everything I could find including malware searching and, of course, setting google as my search preference but no matter what I try the splash page for Firefox (re-installed twice) is Yahoo. Has anyone found a cure for this issue on their Mac - my Mac parameters are in the attached screenshot.

Thanks for any sage wisdom!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi, is Yahoo appearing at startup in place of the normal "Firefox Home" page? To test whether Yahoo has replaced your home page, you can press Command+N to launch a new window. If Yahoo shows up there, check your home page setting on the Preferences page: How to set the home page.

If you meant something different by splash page, how do you load that page?
