How do I alter the home page for my browser, Mozilla Fiefox on my computer. I want it to show the ASK search engne when I open the window. At present it is showing the AOL/Talktalk one which I do not want. Have Windows Xp and talktalk as my ISP
In Firefox click Tools menu and Options - Main tab and select When Firefox Starts Show My Home Page. In the Home Page URL type the address of the Ask search engine and click OK. Close Firefox then re-open.
If you have the problem again and wish to correct it, this time have the Ask page already open as needed for your home page.
Then go to Tools>Options>Main tab and click Use Current Page.
Sometimes the keying in of the URL works, but other times it doesn't (it won't at all normally with IE as it reverts back to the page on display if not the one required), so you need to have the actual home page open and to select Use Current Page.
