Firefox Homepage Changed

My TT Homepage has changed from always displaying "News and TV Guide" to "TV Broadband and Calls" with an ad for TT fibre etc. Every time I change it back it reverts to the ad page. Anyone know why it's changed and how I can get it back to the News Page?

Hi Andy

 

I suspect a developer has altered the link to the News and TV Guide. It's clearly not linking correctly.

 

Please set your homepage to https://more.talktalk.co.uk/

Hello amigo, where do I set it to keep the News Page on permanently?

Select the News and TV Guide page https://more.talktalk.co.uk/ on a single tab opened on Firefox then:

  • Select Menu (triple line icon) or Tools from the Menu Bar
  • Options
  • Home
  • Then under New Windows and Tabs - Homepage and new windows
    Select Use Current Pages

Done all that Gondola, still defaults to the ad page.

Hi Andy

 

When Firefox starts with the homepage set to https://more.talktalk.co.uk/ then you'll go to the News and TV Guide.

 

If you then happen to select the News and TV Guide link on the TalkTalk page it will obviously link to the wrong page because the developers have got an incorrect link there.  I've reported this for you.

 

Until TalkTalk get the link working correctly then perhaps you could set https://more.talktalk.co.uk/ on the Bookmarks Toolbar.

  • Go to https://more.talktalk.co.uk/
  • On the keyboard press and hold CTRL and then press D
    to bring up the bookmarks window
  • Select Bookmarks Toolbar in the Folder dropdown list

That will then put the News and TV Guide on the Bookmarks Toolbar so you can easily go to it and workaround the wrong link on the TalkTalk page.

Good morning Gondola and thanks for your help. How about this? I used your "more talktalk" suggestion, altered the Homepage to that and it now shows the news page. Unsure why that should be!

Good morning Andy.

 

When Firefox starts with the homepage set to https://more.talktalk.co.uk/ then you'll go to the News and TV Guide.

 

Of course I'd like you to believe that it was pure Gondola magic  that's at work!

 

Thank you though for reporting the link failure on the TalkTalk pages. I haven't figured out why the links are being changed but no doubt the developers have some amazing scheme planned that isn't quite working for us right now.

Thanks again Gondola, now do I keep the "more" setting or return it to the TT?

Hi Andy

 

Well, I'd keep the browser homepage set to https://more.talktalk.co.uk/ then you'll go to the News and TV Guide on start up.  Store that page in a browser bookmark, for example on the Bookmarks Toolbar as I mentioned, so it's always available to you.

Hi Andy

 

I see that the developers have now corrected the TalkTalk homepage link to the News & TV Guide so that it defaults to the News & TV Guide rather than the Shop / Sales page.  Thanks again to you for alerting us.
