“Take Firefox with You” introduction on 9-MAY-2018 proved to be a disaster when the computer page DID NOT bring me back to the regular Firefox start page.

 Why was this allowed to happen ?

Hi, could you explain that to me please as I do not know that nor what the start page was suppose to be as you have not provided enough information.

You can check the home page setting.

Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.

In addition to the above :

"Take Firefox With You" - I only see that here :

Where do you see “Take Firefox with You” introduction on 9-MAY-2018  ?

In case you actually are talking about a portable version of Firefox - where did you download it from  ?

When the Firefox 60 update was installed for me (with 3 different Profiles) that “Take Firefox with You” opened in an additional tab which I was able to close to see the new default homepage which is different than it was with Firefox 57 thru 59 -- after I changed the New Tab page to eliminate a few of the 5 New Tab Preferences (feature categories).

IOW, the "default homepage" was different after I changed the New Tab page in Fx 57-59 -- it switched to the old about:home page with the Firefox icon with the Search container below it and the "Snippets" container at the bottom.

That about:home page is now gone in Firefox 60! Now the New Tab page is the Homepage which doesn't change when the user de-selects any of the 5 features on the New Tab page.
