I can't reset my Home Page in Firefox preference pane. I open the tabs I want to be my home pages, and press "Use Current Pages," yes it defaults to some random pages (about 5 of them) I had open the day I installed the upgrade. Restart does not work, neither does manually entering info (url) for one tab. It just defaults back to 5 random tabs.

Thank you!

This article, specifically the instructions to rename, then regenerate, the prefs.js file, solved my problem:

I really appreciate the time you took to help me with this.
