where is the exact page "embarrassing-restore?
I booted my system this am and got the embarrass/restore page which worked. Mozilla asked if I wanted the upgrade, I said yes. I got 2 files downloaded Itunes and the 5.2 firefox upgrade. I ran both. Only the yahoo home page came up. I want to know where the exact page "embarrassing/restore is so I can bookmark for future problems.
Additional System Details
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 15.17.20050
- Shockwave Flash 23.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0
That page comes up when Firefox is trying to restore your previous content.
When something goes wrong Firefox tries specific files or backup files in a particular order, so that it will use the best not corrupted file it is able to find.

Firefox will do something similar with bookmarks, and that is a bit more user friendly, BUT take care if you consider experimenting with that because it will overwrite your current bookmarks,
I am not sure exactly what you updated. Firefox is currently Fx48.0.2 & will soon update to Fx49
