Which page opens if you start Firefox?

You can set the home page to about:home by clearing the Home page field.

This - http://www.google.com/firefox - is the old Firefox Start Page used by the Firefox 3.6 and earlier versions of Firefox, I don't think it is being maintained by Google.

Starting with the Firefox 4 version, Firefox is using a "local" Start Page with the address of about:home. It looks similar to the old Start Page, but it isn't exactly the same.

I have downloaded the 8.0.1 version of Firefox from its own site (found via Google). When I click on the button of Firefox and go to "about Firefox" is says I have the 8.0.1 version. When I start Firefox I get the warning. I do not know whether your answer (which I welcome very much) solves the problem. My question is: what should/can I do?
