Friefox version 75.0 (64-bit) Windiws 10 (Japanese) Windows updated, drivers updated.

It is almost 2 or three weeks when I click on Firefox Icon (pinned in task bar) or on the Desktop the website which supposed to be opened (yaoo.com) does not open rather a white blank page opens. Problem remain same even after recent Firefox updates. Please refer screen shot. Am I doing something wrong? or if, there is any solution please share and oblige. Thank you.

Why won't Firefox 74 on Windows 10 start at my homepage when run from the taskbar?

I'm running Firefox v74.0 on Windows 10 v1903 with all the latest security updates. My homepage is www.yahoo.com. When I start Firefox by double-clicking the icon on my desktop it opens the homepage correctly. When I start it by clicking the Firefox icon on my taskbar, the main window of Firefox remains blank and it won't open the homepage until I click the homepage icon in the upper left of the Firefox screen. I have already deleted the icon on the taskbar and replaced it by dragging the icon from the desktop back to the taskbar.

How do I make my Homepage different from New Windows?

Currently, whatever link(s) you set as your Homepage is also the same link(s) that appears when you open a New Window. The way that New Window is inherently clumped together with the Homepage seems to make it impossible to separate the two in the Options settings.

What is the logic behind this? Why have a separate setting for New Tab, but not New Window? I like having Firefox open up multiple tabs as my homepage when I first boot up Firefox, but if I want to open up a new window just for screen management space with Ctrl+N, I really am not interested in my homepages being re-instantiated, as I already have them open on my first window.

I really want my Homepages to remain a custom mix of tabs with any New Tab and New Window opening up to a Firefox's default new tab page. Is that not possible? I can't have a custom Homepage without also having a custom New Window configuration? :(

It just seems like an arbitrary distinction. What can I do to make this magical world of separate Homepage and New Window settings happen?

Sincerely, A Fan

I am using Firefox version 68.0.1 on my laptop with Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Browser is Google.uk Every time I start Firefox it gives two homepages instead of one. This means if I start typing something too quickly - some of the type goes on the first homepage and some on the second ! I find this very annoying.

For several weeks (since an update to Firefox was installed) I have not been able to get FIrefox to connect to my internet service provider home page. I keep getting:

Unable to connect Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.iserv.net.


I can connect to many other web sites, and it isn't a firewall issue either.

Both settings for the first page and the HOME page are the same. When I start Firefox, I need an EMPTY page/tab. When I click on HOME, I want a certain page (for example. https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en). Please fix this by separating the two settings. Thanks.

All,

I have five tabs that open by default in Firefox. If I, say, navigate many pages away from "home" on one tab, how can I easily return to that tab's "home" location. Using "ALT-Home", as I have in other browsers, opens a whole new batch of my home tabs.

Using Firefox 66.0.2 (64 bit) on a Macbook pro OS 10.14.4. Firefox has been my default browser for years but this issue has appeared since the last update of Firefox. When Firefox is opened I get three tabs: one for my home page (Duckduck go), one for Ghostery settings, and one for Youtube HD settings. If I close Ghostery and YTHD the same thing will occur the next time Firefox is opened. At first I thought that the preferences to Ghostery and YTHD needed to be set (or reset), but these changes are not updated. I checked preferences of Ghostery and YTHD upon opening Firefox (when the additional tabs open) and preferences are not updated? Have no idea why this change is happening.

I set google.com as my homepage and haven't had problems until today. When I opened Firefox, The Microsoft homepage opened. I tried refreshing Firefox, checked the URL in Properties, and looked for add-ons--no fixes. The refresh had no effect, there was no URL added to the firefox.exe in properties, and I have no add-ons that would cause this. I thought it could be a virus but the page seems to be a legitimate Microsoft site. If I click the home icon on the tool bar, I get to the correct page. I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thanks

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!
