    I just update my Skype to recreate the problem and I see the installer had 2 checkboxes saying "Make bing my default search engine" and another one about "MSN". I continued with the installation with both options enabled but all my browsers are working as it should be. Try resetting your firefox's default page by going to options and clicking "Restore to default" button under general tab.

    I restarted firefox and now I see the homepage link set to the link you posted.

    Clicking the "Restore to Default" button fixed the issue for me.

    HI OP, you can easily remove that second tab on your Mozilla browser by doing this simple trick.
    1. Go to ‘options' which can be found when you click the 3 horizontal lines at the top right corner of your browser
    2. Go to ‘General' and on the ‘Home Page' box remove/delete the link that says ‘msn.com'. You can leave the yahoo.com link so that it stays as your home page or click restore to default.

    Hope it helps.
