Please explain the problem in detail.What happens? - it does not happen with Google Chrome, Edge, or Brave browsers. Firefox keeps rolling back to homepage. It also opens new widows automatically. All work is lost because of this. I am working with Windows 10, Firefox 94.0.2 (64-bit). I am thinking about altenatives.

Set the home page. Wait a few moments, then close the browser.

Wait a bit, then Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Thank you Fred. Yes, it worked for while. Now, the original problem is back again. I dont know what to do. Troubleshoot, refresh, creating new profiles, even re-install. I ve got only 4 extensions active now, namely uBlock Origin, AdBlock — best ad blocker, AutocopySelection2Clipboard, and SaveFrom.net helper. The hard drive is SSD 240gb, with 8gb ddr 3 RAM. It is first time in many years Firefox is giving me troubles.

I called for more help.

On "refresh" now. Removed 'SaveFrom.net helper' extension. Hoping that it will work out. How do I sent my browser data to mozilla developers?
