When I select "Use Current Pages" from the Options page, why does the options page save as a permanent tab as well? How can I prevent this?

The issue was the |about:preferences was being added after using Use Current Pages for Homepage. This has been fixed since Firefox 46.0.

Note Firefox 52.0 may be the last Release to support WinXP and Vista so in order to still get security updates for Firefox you will need to use the then Firefox 52.0 ESR. The ESR channel generally gets eight updates so 52.8.0esr will be out when Firefox 60.0 is released.
