I was prompted to update firefox (to version 13). Normally no problems. This time, while it keeps trying to search for my default Google uk home page it doesn't succeed. I am just left with a blank Firefox header page with just an address bar which is not operative due to the never-ending search for the google start.
I have tried deleting firefox completely from add/ remove programs, reinstalling it and rebooting but the same things happens. It just searches for Google.
By the way I am using Windows XP Pro and Panda 2008 antivirus, both of which have automatic upates.
Can anyone help me? Many thanks.

I just tried removing Firefox - then rebooting - then reinstalling Firefox - then rebooting - and it now works fine! A bit of a hassle, but lets just call it a glitch!

But many thanks for your reply in any case.
