I am using Firefox version 68.0.1 on my laptop with Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Browser is Google.uk Every time I start Firefox it gives two homepages instead of one. This means if I start typing something too quickly - some of the type goes on the first homepage and some on the second ! I find this very annoying.

Since latest update on Firefox I get tabs automatically opened for Ghostery and Youtube HD

Using Firefox 66.0.2 (64 bit) on a Macbook pro OS 10.14.4. Firefox has been my default browser for years but this issue has appeared since the last update of Firefox. When Firefox is opened I get three tabs: one for my home page (Duckduck go), one for Ghostery settings, and one for Youtube HD settings. If I close Ghostery and YTHD the same thing will occur the next time Firefox is opened. At first I thought that the preferences to Ghostery and YTHD needed to be set (or reset), but these changes are not updated. I checked preferences of Ghostery and YTHD upon opening Firefox (when the additional tabs open) and preferences are not updated? Have no idea why this change is happening.

FF 58.0.2 64-bit Windows 7 64-bit

My home page is

http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/on-118_metric_e.html

Frequently, when I open FF, I get the following error:

"Page Not Found (HTTP 404)

The page requested could not be found at this location.

If you navigated using a bookmark, we suggest you delete it or update the bookmark pointing to this site"

However, when I highlight the url in the address box, copy it, then paste it into a new tab, the page opens. The address is exactly the same in the new tab as in the one giving the error message.

I've scanned for malware, rootkits, viruses - all for nothing.

I've uninstalled and re-installed FF - no change.

Can anyone advise what else I can do, please?

I have updated to the latest version of firefox browser. Problem is that it shows the New Tab page with Top Sites instead of the default homepage which i much prefer. The default mozilla firefox homepage is set correctly in preferences but still i get the New Tab page with Top Sites when I open firefox or select the Home button. As an addtional item - can I get rid of the New Tab page with Top Sites option because I simply don't want it. I want the homepage on any new tab I open.

Thanks in advance for your help.
