How do I change the Default Home Page in Firefox?


I am trying to set the Default home Page to one of my own choosing because so many applications change the default to one of THEIR choice and it's a pain. I tried using the registry in IE but that only works for earlier versions and I cannot find how to do it at all in Firefox. I have looked through the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ folder and cannot see anything to allow this (save for some programmer spells default as DEFUALT)!
