Windows 7: My Home Page Keeps Getting Redirected

My Home Page Keeps Getting Redirected

I'm using Firefox ver 4.0.1 and my home page is set to "blank". The problem started today. Whenever I click on "Home" on the toolbar I get redirected to a site called "Global Classified--Pasar". I checked my options settings and it is still listed as "blank" for my home page. Any ideas of how to fix this? Any and all help is needed.

Thank You.

Got it fixed.

What finally worked for me was to reset my toolbars and controls in safemode since nothing else worked. I used the RUN " firefox -safe-mode "option because going to the Firefox folder was of no use.

The site was: My homepage is being redirected to another website, called Pasar Global Classifieds (dial.com) which was not installed by me, and is a nuisance. I have searched for this bug, but have been unable to locate it. What do you suggest? | Firefox Support F

My MSN home page gone
Last night I and noticed MS made a change to the home page again. Gone is the "friendly" look of the original page. Internet Options still shows "http//my.msn.com/". but it's a totally different 'mish-mash' of articles. Guess we're stuck with this last creation - or change to another home page.
