After updating Firefox, I have lot access to all bar the first page of Google Search Pages, which restricts one's search ability.

Any idea on how one can restore full access to Google search results

Additionally, on opening Firefox one is no longer directed to the home page. On clicking on History, Homepage is no longer available - Please advise how to fix.

Many thanks, Ken

To get all the Google search options go to the top of the opening Google page and click on 'More' and then "Even More', but I don't know about your Homepage as mine is a 'Show a blank page' :)

With the home page thing you will find an option to change it. With me on Linux it is under Edit/Preferences but from memory Windows it is under Tools/(something else. Maybe Options) and then the General tab.
Don't really understand your problem with Google though.

To reset homepage in Firefox Go to Options. General tab......type in the URL for your homepage then click ok. That should do it. (this is for Windows 7) If you are using XP it could be Tools, Option General Tab..can't remember :)

Tried Google search options "going to the top of the opening Google page and click on 'More' and then "Even More'"

Still cannot get more than the first page of Google Search Results

Terry,
Still have not managed to get more than the first search page,
I did find a Google chat page were several people have complained of the same problem, so it is not uncommon, and no solution to it was offered on the Google chat pages.

I'd do as Speedy suggests, try re-installing Firefox. It sounds as though there is some corruption somewhere.
