|I discovered the two(2) essential missing bits to my personal |
knowledge-base were missing:
1) using CTRL-click in the menu area displays the menus in
fire fox (discovered from the firefox help forum)
which allowed control of the browser commands
2) using "options' in the browser allowed me to reset and
remove the bing search and then change my startup page
malware just deleted some adware stuff..
thanks for the efforts and leads. all is well with my world now!
