I have chosen a persona, but when I start up Firefox, Mozilla start page with Google shows, and persona is just barely visible only in the toolbar area. How do I get the persona to show, and not Google start-up page?

Posted

I checked out the Mozilla Personas, saw one I liked, and added on. When I start Firefox, the Mozilla start-up page shows as usual with Google on it. The Persona I chose barely shows, and only in the Toolbars area at the top of the screen. Can I modify the start-up page to not show Google, and access Google another way, so that my Persona will show on the whole start-up page?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I added-on Persona

As you can see from the using themes with Firefox article, personas are "lightweight themes that can change the color scheme and background image of the Firefox toolbars" and they wouldn't change the webpages. If you don't like seeing Google as your home page you might want to look at how to set the home page and change it. Finally Firefox 3.5.x will be maintained with security and stability updates until August 2010, so you might want to update to a newer version.
