Sorry to intrude on your holidays but I have another problem.
Last week a Rogers (ISP) repairman upgraded my modem to a newer one and ever since my Firefox has gone bananas. When I open Firefox my home page comes up as "rogers.my.yahoo.com". That is not the homepage I want. I change the 'show my homepage' to "Yahoo.ca", click 'home' and the proper home page does come up..but when I close Firefox and reopen it again comes up as "rogers.my.yahoo.com". when I check under tools, options, the 'show my homepage' reads: http://www.rogers.com/smartkey. I've tried several methods but to no avail. Each time I want my home page to open the way I want I have to change it manually each time I open Firefox. I found the problem [or at least I think I did], in my 'program files' under mozilla the mozilla.cfg file reads "//Firefox Default Settings
pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://www.rogers.com/smartkey");", which to me says it has locked that home page and I am unable to change it.
ALSO, on top of that I cannot open any videos. Each time I try it says I have to upgrade flashplayer to be able to open the video. I've always had flashplayer but to be safe I installed the latest version. But again when I try to open a video it still says I have to install an upgrade to my flashplayer. This is very strange because everything works in Google Chrome and I.E., the videos work, and my home page comes up the way I want it in both of those browsers but firefox is all "foxed" up. Can't change my home page, can't play videos and it doesn't recognize flashplayer.
I tried deleting the 'mozilla.cfg' file but then I can't open firefox at all, it says can't open because it can't find the .cfg file so I had to restore the file. I tried changing the .cfg file but it will not allow me to.
I contacted Rogers but, as usual, they claim they don't deal in or with Firefox so they can't offer any help at all.
Anyone have any ideas? Please?
