I have had my options set to "show a blank page" when Firefox starts. This has always worked fine until just recently... now it always reopens with whatever tabs/pages I had open at the time I last closed it. I checked and the option is still set properly. There was a similar report from someone who had changed to Windows 10, but I'm still at Windows 7. The other person didn't get a solution either. I'm at FF 41.0.1.

This just started yesterday. I have flash player plugin version 20.0.0.306 installed. When I set it to "Never Activate" in Tool\addons my homepage loads fine when I open Firefox. When i have it set to "Ask to activate" or "Always activate" my homepage will not load and i get a blank New Page. I reloaded firefox from scratch and reinstalled the flash player from the adobe update website. Kinda weird but I am wondering if this has been addressed or if anyone else it seeing this. i am running 64 bit version of FF on Windows 7 Pro. FF version is 44.0. Thank you !

Hello, I'm one of proud users of Mozilla Firefox.

 My problem is when I start Mozilla Firefox, it loads to a page which is www.duba.com . This page is really unpleasant for me so I had gone through the settings in Firefox itself and also through Control panel on my PC. 
 
 Despite doing all of those things mentioned, this pesky website still appear upon startup and there is only one thing on my mind which is uninstalling Mozilla Firefox. Of course I will not uninstall it unless you can guide to remove this rather freaking website.
       Best  regards from me,
               ZED.

With multiple tabs already open and ending a browsing session from my home page tab, I then click the "home" icon on the address bar and while I am redirected to my home page, the tabs, including my home page are opened 4 more times resulting with at least 4 sets of open duplicate tabs.

How can I stop this?

Cannot access my home page. I can get to my bookmarks and the rest of the internet, but when I click on the Mozilla Firefox icon, it takes me to a page that says "Page Not Found." I did not alter the home page or the Firefox access in any way. The page has disappeared.

I can actually live without it if I have to, but I like the little news updates and the easy access to my e-mail.

I'm just mystified that without any apparent reason the home page suddenly was gone. I have rebooted the computer many times but the page does not come back.

For several weeks (since an update to Firefox was installed) I have not been able to get FIrefox to connect to my internet service provider home page. I keep getting:

Unable to connect Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.iserv.net.


I can connect to many other web sites, and it isn't a firewall issue either.

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.

I set google.com as my homepage and haven't had problems until today. When I opened Firefox, The Microsoft homepage opened. I tried refreshing Firefox, checked the URL in Properties, and looked for add-ons--no fixes. The refresh had no effect, there was no URL added to the firefox.exe in properties, and I have no add-ons that would cause this. I thought it could be a virus but the page seems to be a legitimate Microsoft site. If I click the home icon on the tool bar, I get to the correct page. I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thanks

My home page is set in Tools and all was working normally until I started up firefox today and a blank tab appeared instead of my home page. I've closed and opened the browser many times, also rebooted the computer, and the problem persists. The other tabs that open from the tab bar are set correctly and working normally. Is there a line in about:config that could fix this? I've used it successfully for tabs (browser.newtab.URL), but not until I researched and was confident I was doing it right.
