Homepage does not load on startup after update to Firefox 77

Ever since Firefox automatically updated to version 77, I see a blank page on startup instead of it loading up my homepage. I have to hit the homepage button to load it up now. I had not changed any preferences, so it wasn't caused by anything I did.

FYI, I noticed that if I open a second Firefox window, it does load the homepage up automatically.

Based on past questions about similar issue, I checked to make sure about:config browser.startup.page was set to 1, and it was.

I had already tried restarting computer and toggling browser.startup.blankWindow before, but that did not work.

I went down Arman Khan's list sequentially and got to step#4 before it solved the problem-- so reinstalling Firefox was my solution. Thank you!
