Firefox default home page
If you are referring to the Google/Firefox home page with the Google search, a new version has been built-in to Firefox; it appears that Google is no longer maintaining their old page since the new built-in version is available in Firefox.

To get the new built-in default home page, change your home page to about:home

EDIT (Added): You can also type about:home in a blank tab to get the new page; you can then Bookmark that page, if you wish.

Restore Previous Session

  1. Be sure that you are saving history:
  2. Be sure that you are not in Private Browsing and do not automatically start in Private Browsing
  3. Be sure not to clear history when using Clear Recent History or when exiting/closing Firefox
