While updating /downloading Java I suspect I declined all offers for software and eventually stopped the download Do Search now is the first page that loads when I click on Mozilla When I press 'home' (top right/address bar) I go to the Mozilla Firefox Start Page Options/General/Mozilla Start Page is in the little tab window Control Panel/Internet Options/https://www.mozilla.org/ is in Home Page window however if I click on 'Use default' switch "do Search' pops back in. I deleted/blocked the extension in the Mozilla Add-on section I ran a virus scan and cleaned my computer, restarted however I cannot fix the problem

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can check the target line in the Firefox desktop shortcut (right-click: Properties) to make sure that nothing is appended after the path to the Firefox program.

what does the target line look like? I can't see what's going on?

The target shows the command that is used to launch Firefox and should only have the full path to the Firefox program enclosed in quotes.

  • (64 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
  • (32 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

If you see a reference to the do-search website then remove that trailing part.
