Firefox will not save my designated website as my homepage to open up upon start up, Why?
Firefox will not accept my designated webpage as my homepage, it automatically reverts back to the firefox web page. I have tried numerous times, but it keeps it as the home page for as long as it is open, but it erases it once the program is closed, and reverts back to the firefox page.

If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:
You can check if you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize some prefs on each start of Firefox.
The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created it, so normally it wouldn't be there. you can check its content with a plain text editor if you didn't create this file yourself.
The user.js file is read each time you start Firefox and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.
