After starting Firefox all is well. When I open a new tab I get "Server not found" It only a minor problem as if I click on the home icon my home page is displayed and all is well. I believe that the tab has no instruction to go to my home page, but I do not know how to set it. thanks

You can check the browser.newtab.url pref on the about:config page to see the current new tab page setting.

You can use the SearchReset extension to reset some preferences to the default values.

Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
