    I see many other questions about this topic, and while the URL used is different in each case, the effect is the same. In my case, the URL used is "http://www.searchqu.com/406" . When I start up Firefox this is the start-up page used. The home page button shows this and when I go into Tools/Options, the home page is this. If I put in a different address for the home page, if I set the current tab to the address I want and choose "Use Current Page" or if I choose "Use Bookmark" and select the address I want, when I stop Firefox and then restart it, the home page is back to http://www.searchqu.com/406. I can go to "Most Visited" and choose the address I want but there is a problem I can't solve. Any ideas?
