firefox 18.0.1 about:startpage not working

i have recently installed the latest firefox for linux on an ubuntu based distro. When i first used mozilla it went to the homepage : about:startpage . However, it did not work...neither the search nor any other buttons, such as downloads, history, bookmarks, etc seemed to be working. nothing happened when i clicked these buttons. how could i solve this problem?

-help for taking the time to read my problem :)
