Why does my home page keep reverting to the old home page when I set a new one?

Posted

I am using Firefox 3.6.13 on a Dell Latitude E5500 laptop, Windows XP. I changed the home page to a new page that I want to set. It may stick for a few times, but it always eventually reverts back to the page that had been set previously as the home page after a few times opening the browser. Why does it keep changing back to the old home page?
