Which browser would that be John? Are there other users of that computer with Google or Yahoo accounts? Browser/toolbar-settings can be saved to those accounts and if some-one else has used his/her account as defoult-account that could explain this behaviour. Don't know if that'ld also be passible for Apple- and/or iTunes accounts + Safari. Otherwise this might be damaged browser-software.
I am the only user and Chrome is my default browser. Everything is working perfect except the Bing behaviour I decribed when I set Bing as Homepage. Google is currently set as Homepage and is fine. once the browser is opened, I simply use the Bing button on my Bookmarks bar instead of the Homepage icon.
I have only recently re-installed Chrome in the past two weeks. Nothing seems to be sounding any alarm bells so far.
My OS is the old faithful Windows XP Home 2002.
Just checked, the same Bing faults happen on Firefox and the Bing setting is filters OFF on Chrome and Firefox.
Not worth wasting time on this. Constant changing of filter preferences from OFF back to MODERATE after browser closure is an inherent Bing fault that may users throughout the world have already complained about. I consider the matter a conclusive Bing problem and therefore closed.
