Does not always open to Google home page.


Firefox does not always open to my home page, Google. I have set Google as my home page, and I have set Firefox to open my home page on start up. Once when I clicked on an emailed link my browser opened with two tabs. The first was the last page visited, and the second was the link I clicked. I have uninstalled Firefox, ran CCleaner, rebooted, and reinstalled. I still have the problem with Firefox opening on the last page visited and not my home page.

Try restore all your option to default and turn off plugins.

Question owner

Did a clean install without plugins, just set the home page options. Still does it.
