I recently ran into a problem with firefox and amazon. That was fixed by uninstalling/reinstalling and using links from the 'old firefox data' file. Some things did not come back as expected so I did a system restore. The last restore point was before the problem. That did not bring back the missing items though.

One of the things that changed is the 'shortcuts' The shortcuts I used have mostly gone away and do not re-populate, so far. I liked the convenience of having this list of frequently used shortcuts and half the ones I always used are gone.

The recent activity links seem to be limited to 16 and are huge icons.

Now there was a change to the control bar top of the page. Specifically the download status icon. It used to show the download progress and terminate when the dl is complete. NOW, and I find it annoying, upon completion of the dl, a drop down list of the most recent downloads pops-up. Why? I do not need to see that list every time a dl successfully occurrs. And why is there no way to let it go back to the previous operation?

There is an old adage that software developers don't seem to get: "If it aint broke, don't fix it."

I can't tell you anything about your "home page" because I have never used a home page. This article may help.

You can stop the download panel popping up like that by changing a preference in about:config to false. browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel

your link to solve the download panel popping up worked. As for the first part - I was not talking about the home page. When you open a new tab in the browser you get a place where you can view recent activity and shortcuts. The shortcuts used to populate when you visit a page. I had all 4 lines in use with KEY shortcuts kept for frequent use. These shortcuts no longer populate so I can't recover new instances of the shortcuts I used to use. That was why I used the screen shot to illustrate.

Thanks for the help with the popup thing. After setting it from true to false I tested it and all is well on that score.

OK, it seems you are talking about the "new tab" page (which I don't use either) so these may help.
