An account is required for all customization features.
Background / Font selection - will save automatically when you either click off or close the settings sidebar.
Link settings (How websites open and how links are displayed) - Simply click [Save Now] button at bottom of sidebar.
Custom Websites - be sure you enter a full URL (e.g. http://www.mywebsite.com) in order for the Custom Websites area to save properly. If parts of this are missing, the form will not submit or save correctly.
Note: The default number of custom sites is 2. However, you can add more FREE simply by upgrading your account. You can do this in the My Account section of the account menu. Simply hit the Links+ button and proceed.
If you are having difficulty with the location of various websites, then those websites are likely seeing your ISP (Internet Service Provider) location, not your physical location.
My advice: Try accessing the settings or setup of whichever site you are seeing this issue, then stay logged in. For TV Guide, movie listings, and weather (Google), those sites will often times have the option to manually input your location under your profile settings. Or, in the case of favorites theaters (Yahoo), you can add them as favorites.
In short, BHE is not reading your location - other sites are. So, it is up to you to customize your settings through them to cater to your location.
This page does not have any advertisements or pop-ups. It never will. So, if you see anything like this, it is likely either Malware (what is Malware?), or 3rd-party software that is interfering with either your browser or your computer.

While programming the homepage, I've done by very best to be backward compatible with old versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla, etc. However, over time, those browsers need to be updated in order to support HTML 5 and other modern languages.
If you would like to know which browser you are currently using, click here. At the time of this writing, Internet Explorer 11, Chrome 48, Firefox 44, and Safari 5.1 are the most current. If you have not updated your browser in over a year, I would recommend doing so.
Upon completion of your update, be sure to copy/paste https://besthomepageever.com into your new homepage settings, as many browsers attempt to advertise and direct you into their own pages.
