    Help Needed in Changing my firefox homepage


    Hi everyone,
    I am experiencing issues with changing my homepage in Mozilla Firefox. (It's Windows 10 btw, the newest). I have followed all the steps on the google help website as well as the firefox website and the windows 10 website, but every time I close and open up firefox again it always goes back to the original homepage, which was my school's website that I'm simple tired of seeing. I think google would make a better homepage because it is more attractive than the school page, and it is also more efficient as I do not have to type in google.com when I want to search for something. Any constructive help is appreciated.

    You have not said precisely what steps you have taken, so it would be futile now to suggest thing other than the normal one of starting Fx in Safe Mode, to see if the problem persists.

    Most likely this is the case and you won't be able to change the homepage to anything else permanently without Admin rights. Maybe not even then depending on how it's configured.

    To set a homepage in Firefox, in the menu bar (top left of a Firefox window) click tools > options, on the page that opens select Home in the menu on the left. In the Homepage and new windows field click the down arrow and highlight Custom URLs... then either type, or cut and paste the URL you want as the homepage. See the snip below:
