Opening a new session of FF19 opens the previous session instead of the set homepage. How do I correct this?

Posted

After updating to FF 19, every time I open a new session of FF, it restores whatever previous session I had last used. I have already checked to make sure the setting "When Firefox Starts: Show my home page" is selected. How do I fix this?

Chosen solution

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

You can check for problems with preferences and try to rename or delete the prefs.js file and possible numbered prefs-##.js files and a possible user.js file to reset all prefs to the default values.
