Searching oddities in browser preferences I found out a different home page that could not be changed. I did all the anti malware routines but this could not be solved. This is my work in progress mac, lots of OS upgrades in the past lots of backups , so I began to investigate and also checked on my other 2 older macs Big headache!
And here we are: I can add that as soon as you close the session and also restart Safari, the home page can be set again. I have to thank everyone that wrote here, but this one deserves a special thank. I was checking a mac for malware infections and got rid of everything but still could not solve the homepage problem. To me it makes no sense, I mean, I can fill a password prompt with an admin credentials but cannot change the home page in safari?
Sorry but the first post as cj did not appear for a day, so I wrote it again. If you want you can delete it.
