I have www.google.com/firefox set as home page. Why won't it open as of today?

Posted

I have read the support pages on this topic and have updated to the latest version, 34.0.

Thank you Philipp. So the relationship with Google must have just ended because google.com/firefox was appearing as my home page yesterday. Or maybe I last saw it on Sunday which makes sense since that was Nov 30th.

hello jdminsf, this page was last used several years ago - the default homepage now is under the address "about:home", which you can set like described atHow to set the home page . since the search partnership between mozilla and google ended, they've retired that google.com/firefox.
