Firefox homepage locked to search.norton.com

I'm running firefox and for whatever my homepage is now locked into http://search.norton.com/. My firefox Tools > Options > General > Homepage is set to duckduckgo.com but whenever I open a new browser session or tab I get the norton/ask search engine. Not certain if this something Norton did or what but I would like to be able to unlock my homepage. How do I about doing so? TIA.

Your friends at Norton ~ Why is the default home page of my browser displaying Norton Home Page?
Please see > How do I remove the Norton Home Page in Firefox?

Appears as part of current Product Update - 21.7
Added a new optional Norton Home Page (http://search.norton.com) feature for Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers to use Norton Safe Search as your home page to protect all your searches from phishing and other risky sites. see Product Update - 21.7 here

Thank you for the quick response and I read the linked document. Strangely though, I checked about:config and the browser.startup.homepage value is set to duckduckgo.com. Browser still going to search.norton.com.

...um, all I can tell ya'...is my about:config startup is set to my homepage...can you go through Options and setup your homepage again...cycle browser to test.

Or,

  1. In the browser.startup.homepage row, right-click the current URL value and click Modify.

  2. In the Enter string value dialog, type the URL that you prefer to be your home page and click OK.

cycle browser to test

Hello

I would try restarting your computer after you have gone through the 6 steps listed there.. Make sure you click on Modify and OK. Then see what happens.

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Norton Core Security Plus 22.17.3.50 Core Firmware 282 I E 11 Chrome latest version.

The reboot seemed to work. Had to edit browser.newtab.url as well.

Norton sorta' snuck that one in....as I recall there was a prompt that I declined...
As flo mentioned restart... a restart was required to settle in 21.7...so, another restart maybe help'd charm the beast.
