I want igoogle to be my homepage, but when I click onMozillz Firefox I get
First of all, your question is not complete. What really are you asking about? Changing the Homepage to iGoogle? And for some reasons you are not able to change the Homepage in Mozilla Firefox. If this is so, firstly, you should go to 'Options -> Options' by clicking over the FIREFOX tab. Now under the 'General' tab, go to 'Home Page'. Beside it, in the blank field type 'www.igoogle.com/' and click on OK.
Now check the homepage by clicking over the Home icon on any opened tab.
If you have already done the above and the homepage has not changed, then some program is preventing you to change the homepage. You must uninstall that program before trying the above process again.
You have identified the MY WEB SEARCH as a possible reason and actually it may have caused the problem. But so far I know, it changes the default search engine (in Mozilla, it is Google Search) to it's own type. And there are lots of toolbars (e.g. ask toolbar) , search engines (e.g. babylon search) available, which changes the default homepages and search engines when they are installed. And you should uninstall these search engines or such like unnecessary programs to check whether it solves your problem or not.
These programs usually come as a by-product when you install a software, and if you install the original product in the default mode, these by-products get installed on your computer without you knowing. So, it is always safe to install the softwares in custom mode.
And one thing again, you have used Deviantart Windows 7 Style For Vista to change the look of vista to windows 7. These type of programs usually changes the core system files, so when you will uninstall the software it will leave some elements of its own and your OS look can be a mix of Vista and Seven. And even more, some programs may not work properly. So my advice is to avoid these softwares for your own safety.
Hope this helps,
