    Default MSN Messenger has hijacked Firefox Start page...!

    Hi all;
    This is probably a very simple problem; I use msn messenger and today had a message saying that I must update to the latest version or 'msn will not open'...so I downloaded the latest version which took an eternity and then installed just the basics, like messenger and email.

    Right at the end of the install I got an onscreen message 'make msn messenger my home page.' which I duly ticked...little realising that some how I was in Firefox; so msn has hijacked my Firefox start page away from Google...

    I have looked at firefox>tools>options but there seems no way to reinstate Google as the start page.

    If anyone has any suggestions on how to regain Google as the Firefox start page it would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Zep! Thanks!
    How the hell did I miss that?
    Did the tools>options bit and went through all of the associated tabs and completely overlooked it!
    Many thanks for your very prompt and much appreciated answer!
