so is your problem resolved ??

no. There is only the home page that I want that is saved in the home page options. But they both come up as tabs. Both my home page and the firefox upgrade page come up at the same time.

-> Tap ALT key or press F10 to show the Menu Bar

-> go to Tools Menu -> Options -> General -> When Firefox starts : select "Show My Home Page" -> click Reset to Default button -> click OK

-> Close Firefox (ALT + F -> Exit) -> Restart Firefox

you should now see the Firefox default homepage with a Google Search

Check and tell if its working.

Thanks for the help! Everything seems to be back to normal. Looks like I had a Corrupt file. I removed the prefs.js file and that didn't do it but I left it out anyway. Then I removed the user.js file and that seems to have fixed it. Only thing now is that firefox made a new prefs.js file but not a user.js file. Hope this doesn't cause a problem!
