You can reset the warn prefs on the about:config page via the right-click context menu.

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/about%3Aconfig

Select one of these as the startup setting: Tools > Options > General > Startup: "When Firefox Starts": "Show my home page" or "Show a blank page"

Everything is set to True but I still don't get a warning.

This started suddenly and the box is checked.
