Homepage file not found

After updating to Firefox 63.0, I get the following error when launching the browser or clicking home button:

   File not found
   
   Firefox can’t find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files (x86)/Mozilla Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/en-US/locale/branding/browserconfig.properties.
   
   Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
   Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

When I open a new tab, it goes to the home page no problem (both homepage & new windows and new tabs are set to the default Firefox home). I have tried resetting my homepages and have gone into about:config to reset browser.startup.homepage.

Neither the file location listed above nor the one listed as the value for browser.startup.homepage (chrome://branding/locale/browserconfig.properties) exist in my file directory. I also tried adding these folders and copying the browserconfig.properties file to those locations.

Any helps? Thanks in advance!

So I can't set what page my browser opens to when I click the new tab + icon by just going into settings? I have to jump through hoops and install some plugin? I can set it in chrome. Bye Bye Firefox.

Cannot access my home page. I can get to my bookmarks and the rest of the internet, but when I click on the Mozilla Firefox icon, it takes me to a page that says "Page Not Found." I did not alter the home page or the Firefox access in any way. The page has disappeared.

I can actually live without it if I have to, but I like the little news updates and the easy access to my e-mail.

I'm just mystified that without any apparent reason the home page suddenly was gone. I have rebooted the computer many times but the page does not come back.

On startup, firefox opens a blank tab instead of my home page

My home page is set in Tools and all was working normally until I started up firefox today and a blank tab appeared instead of my home page. I've closed and opened the browser many times, also rebooted the computer, and the problem persists. The other tabs that open from the tab bar are set correctly and working normally. Is there a line in about:config that could fix this? I've used it successfully for tabs (browser.newtab.URL), but not until I researched and was confident I was doing it right.

Two Pop-Up Windows Open When Firefox Is First Opened Each Day (MAC)

When I first turn on my computer and open Firefox I get two pop-up windows that open with Firefox. One is a malware type window that says something to the effect of "fix your mac of errors". I can't remember what the second window says. Either way it is super annoying and I want it to stop! I have ran Malwarebytes scans, and have ran my Sophos antivirus scans as well and nothing has come up. My browser does not seem to have been hijacked as my homepage and everything else is in tact. I know how to uninstall Firefox, but I am not sure where to find the Firefox folder that needs to be deleted to make Firefox a completely new install. If someone could instruct me on how to do that I would appreciate that!

After installing the most recent update of Firefox, Firefox will no longer open with the designate homepage. Instead, it opens with a blank page. When I click on the Homepage icon in the toolbar, the designated home page will open, but it will not open automatically when Firefox is initially launched. Until the update, whenever Firefox was launched it would open with the homepage, which is what I would now like for it to do. I've checked the applicable settings and they are as they always were. Thank you in advance for any help you can give. Steve

Up to version 40 the CLASSIC graphic FF home page was called the DEFAULT. In 41 that seems to be gone. When I try to go back to the CLASSIC home page, the one we are all used to, I get a blank space under the address bar, and the FF thumbnail is gone, and the address bar is filled with an unknown, at least to me, website address. Nothing is familiar anymore. I am ready to ditch the OFFICIAL MOZILLA browser. The third party "LIGHT" is not affected, nor is the "DEVELOPER" version. At least for now. Would the THEME RESTORER work in 41 to bring back the CLASSIC look? Advice please. xxxxxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com.

Firefox browser is showing 2 tabs on startup. My homepage tab which is set in Tools/General and is suppose to show.

Then there is a second tab. It is Tools/Options tab. The tools/options tab is not suppose to show.

Only my homepage is suppose to show. How do I stop the second, Tools/Options, tab from appearing at browser startup?

I have attached an image of the startup protocol for Firefox.
