SOURCE: how do i get rid of mywebsearch as my home page

Hello,
To set the homepage, follow the instructions below:
Click on TOOLS on the menu bar at the top of your FIREFOX window, then click on OPTIONS.

You should be under the Main tab, and then locate the Home Page and type whatever home page you want it to be set. Apply the changes.
To reinstall, you need to go to the Add/Remove section of your control panel if you are using Windows. Download the latest version of Firefox and then run the executable file or the installer. It comes with a wizard so you should be able to follow it correctly.

A browser is the program you are using for browsing the internet. Examples of browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Search engine are the website or add-ons to a web browser that you use to search the internet. Examples of search engines are Google, Yahoo and Bing.
