Stuff has taken over my Firefox opening page, the normal home page is minute and there's no bar for other web sites - how can I get rid of it and get my homepage back, please

Go to Tools/options/General and choose your homepage/Ok

Check for malware as they don't change for no reason

been there Lawrence, home page still there (DominionPost actually) - have run MBAB (v2.0) and tdsskiller, super anti spyware. Avast - all clean - thanks for your comments anyway

Not all that familiar with Firefox but had a similar problem some time back with IE.
Eventually found the Babylon toolbar with spybot.
Got rid of that & cured the problem.
Here is a link to the thread.

Surprising what it finds

Driftwood - thanks for that, got the answer from your link, courtesy of Wainui - restore to default then reset to your choice - simple but you've gotta know what!! - cheers
