Firefox loads http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/central instead of home page


I'm using virtual XP in WIN 7 . Every damn time I open Firefox. I get the "Thank you for downloading Firefox" crap. It loads ahead of my home page. I've ad-blocked it to no avail. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. If I can't get this fixed this week, I'm going to switch browsers.

Refer to this help article on How to Setup the Home Page.

If this still doesn't work, do the following:

  • in the address bar type "about:config";
  • click the button "I'll be careful I promise";
  • in the bar type "browser.startup.page";
  • right-click on it, and change the value to "0";
  • re-start your browser.

Hope this helps.
