    Default YAhoo home page altered

    I have the latest firefox browser. I use Yahoo as my home page. I have a couple of links to facebook and my gmail account on it. Yesterday I opened my browser to the home page and got a different format. I lost my links to Gmail, FaceBook. The page had a giant scroll of news items. Before I had a nice set on compartments with concise 2-4 lines of news broken into news, local news, weather, sports. All of that is gone. I checked it on another pc and everything came back normal, so it must be something on my pc. I had a message saying my flash player has crashed . That happened several times.. I looked in my extensions and it says XULrunner 1.9.1 is incompatible with this new version. That wouldn't cause it? Then I started thinking there may some kind of virus.
    Any other thoughts?
