Firefox keeps on opeing up where i left off instead of starting with my home page. I am using the lastest firefox with windows8. Dosen't happen with windows7. This has happened with the latest update.

Chosen solution

Replacing the pref.js didn't fix the problem I have just done a firefox default reset and that has solved the problem.
