You also have to ensure that you've setup Firefox with your Home Page URL. If you haven't done so, follow the steps below:

  • Go to Options (i.e. \Firefox\Options\Options);
  • Go to the General tab;
  • Under Start-up - enter the URL in the Home Page URL box.

Also, make sure that you have chosen "Show my Home Page" under "When Firefox Starts" (use the drop down arrow).
