I’ve been using Mozilla Firefox 3.0.11 and AVG 8.5.375 antivirus with no problems for a long time.
Note Mozilla’s homepage with Google as the search engine is set as my homepage in Fire Fox’s Options.
I just ran the AVG update. Now my homepage is set to some AVG/Yahoo Search page.
When I use AVG’s toolbar to disable it according to the instructions
Options/Advanced Options/Show Yahoo! search box on new tabs in the browser
Mozilla Firefox WONT open ANY new tabs when I click File/New Tab.
My true homepage which is Mozilla’s start page comes up if I click File/New Window.
Disabling the toolbar doesn’t help.
If I close the Yahoo search on the AVG/Yahoo Search page, I get a blank tab instead of the start page set in Firefox.
Old trusty form Firefox used to let me type an address, say, “Yahoo” and then hold down the <Ctrl> key and hit the <Enter> key to complete the address.
I could also type “yahoo.com” and hit the <Enter> key to get there.
With AVG setting my start page to AVG/Yahoo Search, I can’t do that.
I have to type “www.yahoo.com”.
