How do I get rid of this (see prtscr) non-pinned tab?

Posted

Each time I open Firefox A second (mozilla)tab opens; It's not pinned and it is not my home page. When i keep Firefox open and open a second instance only my Google+ Homepage opens.

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.
