hello, please check under firefox > options > general that your desired homepage is set there.

How to set the home page

Question owner

It opens TWO tabs. My normal homepage and than the setup complete page. Look at the image. It does this every single time I open firefox or press the home button! I do know there was a problem with the sync servers earlier in the week so Im wondering if they are still broken.

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.
