Firefox Stuck

Post by Paperhouse on 19th November 2009, 7:50 am

Froze my computer opening a torrent site and now when I open Firefox the last pages I visited before it happened load, and not my homepage. I deleted the cookies and the history, but the sites are still loading. Is there any way I can change it back so that my homepage loads instead of these websites?

Hello,

I think you've been infected by the torrent site. What page is showing as the hompage now?

Rate Your Music, Empornium, and Gmail (I opened these sites through my e-mail).

Hello,

What shows as your homepage when you launch Firefox?
