IE 9 not keeping 'Home Page'

Hi,

I'm having another problem with IE 9. It will not keep my 'Home Page'.

My Home Page' is www.au.my.yahoo.com. It doesn't matter how many times I type this in the space provided to set my 'Home Page' it reverts back to Yahoo!7. every time I log on,this of course gives me Yahoo 7 but it's not the home page I want.

Can anyone please help?

Hi, Thanks for your reply.

Exactly the same thing. I did try this because that's actually what it should be unfortunately it still reverts to http://au.yahoo.com/?cmp=ie9 Which gives me Yahoo 7 which is, if you know the program, just a plain vanilla 'Home Page' not the one with my selected options/colours.

It was the only way that it to work for me (in the U.S. of A.)


You might try removing all yahoo related cookies and starting fresh - sorry, not a yahoo users...

Under IE 9 Tools>Delete browsing history clear your temp internet files as well as cookies as UsernameIssues posted.

I tried it here from the States and it works properly for me as it did for Username. I left off the www.

Maybe someone will come up with more ideas.

Hi, Thanks for your response. I tried all that, I actually went into Temp/Internet Files and Cookies and deleted every single one. No change. http://au.my.yahoo.com/ this is how I enter my home page in the space provided.
