I have repeatedly checked my settings for Firefox to go to my home page when opened. Instead it opens my last pages opened. I have the most current version of Firefox. This has been going on for about a week.

Ah! I see something!

Your troubleshooting information says that there is a user.js file in your Profile Folder

The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created it, so normally it wouldn't be there. The user.js file is read each time you start Firefox and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file.

Delete a possible user.js file and numbered prefs-##.js files and rename (or delete) the prefs.js file to reset all prefs to the default value including prefs set via user.js and prefs that are no longer supported in the current Firefox release.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:


Rename (or delete) the sessionstore.js file and possible sessionstore-##.js files with a number and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox profile folder.

Make sure that the pref browser.startup.homepage is set to the URL you want in about:config

  • Go to about:config via Address Bar > Click the I'll be careful, I promise! to continue, search for 'browser.startup.homepage and make sure it's set to the site you want. If it's not, right click and click Modify then edit it to your liking.

A third party app may be doing this as well.

I should've read your post more carefully....

You said:

Instead it opens my last pages opened.

You probably have the setting to do that. See if that is true or not

  • Click the orange Firefox button then go to Options
  • Click the General section
  • Where it says When Firefox starts make sure "Show my home page" is selected and not "Show my windows and tabs from last time". If this is selected, simply change it.

It's been set to that, but it still opens my last history instead of my home page.
