homepage in Explorer - Mac Applications & Software

    Default homepage in Explorer


    Maybe there's an answer to this besides Microsoft s.

    Anyhoo, I've been *trying* to change the default homepage in Explorer. It
    seems to work for awhile, but at some random time it resets back to the
    old setting.
    This is what I do: I got to Preferences, then to the Browser Display tab,
    and type in the new URL in the homepage text box.
    Then I click OK and start browsing. It will work just fine at first, and
    when I hit the Home button on the top of the browser, it goes to the new
    site. Even if I quit explorer and restart it, it will keep the new
    homepage setting.
    But later, it reverts back. Its very unpredictable. And annoying.

    Let me add to this - it does seem as if it reverts most consistently after
    a restart. Also, I've just noticed that Explorer doesn't remember any of
    my preferences. One example, it keeps alerting me when I enter and leave
    a secure site. Even if I uncheck the box that says 'don't warn me again'
    it will still warn me again.

    (btw, I'm using 10.2.6, a G4 powerbook)
    Is there some setting I've missed?
