I have recently started to have trouble with my Firefox Home Page. The settings get lost when I close Windows down and re-start. I run Firefox 7.0.1 on Windows 7 Starter (SP1).

What have I done?

Set home page to iGoogle in Windows, set home page to iGoggle in Firefox Result: Home Page setting does not survive a re-start.

Set home page to Blank in Windows, set Home Page to iGoogle in Firefox Result: Home Page setting does not survive a re-start.

Set home page to iGoogle in Windows, set Home Page to Blank in Firefox Result: Home Page setting does not survive a re-start.

Checked Firefox help, advised to edit User.j(?) file. Following the instructions failed to locate the User. file, a search of the entire C: drive failed to locate the file.

What next?

"Set home page to iGoogle in Windows ..."

Firefox has its' own setting for the Firefox homepage, it doesn't use "Internet Options" settings in Windows.

As far as not having a user.js file, it isn't a standard file in Firefox. It is an optional file that the user creates to "lock" certain prefs or it might be added to Firefox via an add-on or by an "exploit" perpetrated on the user by another piece of software that they installed.

Thanks for explanation of the user.js file, but I'm still left with the problem of Firefox not keeping my Home Page. It doesn't matter if I set it in Wndows or Firefox (I've tried every combination) it still gets lost when I shut down! It's only started happening since the last update of Firefox, but I've not heard of anyone else having this problem.
