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 does Firefox STARTUP with a BLANK tab and NOT MY HOMEPAGE? It only started doing this after the last update. When I launch the Firefox from Win10 Pro.

Since the last update of Firefox, it will not open up (upon launching) with my Homepage displayed. Only a blank tab and then I have to click on the little "home" icon for my home page to be shown. I have tried repeatedly changing home screens in the options settings, still no help. Somewhere there must be a "Firefox Startup" ini or something.

Thanks for any help on this.

I've been using Firefox since it first appeared. It's been my default browser since. However, the recent updates have badly broken it, to the point that I may be forced to switch to something else, like (choke) Chrome. Namely, when I open Firefox, no homepage nor URL appears. I can click the 'home' icon, and get there fine. Also, since Firefox is myu default browser in Windows10, if I click on a hotlink from an email, the same thing happens...Firefox opens, but the passed URL does not happen. Just a blank screen in both cases.

I've looked through lots of online help, but NOTHING has helped at all.

Thoughts ?

Different homepages for different devices

I am trying to setup custom startpages that I am creating using HTML5/CSS/JS. Issue is I am doing this in multiple devices that I have Firefox Sync on.

Those devices are Manjaro (Linux) and Windows 10. Thus their directories and such differ vastly.

I setting the homepage to be `/home/arszilla/.config/mozilla-firefox/HomePage/index.html` on Linux, whereas on Windows it is `C:\Users\Arslan\Documents\Mozilla Firefox\HomePage\index.html`. However due to the sync this gets overwritten constantly.

Is there a way for me to keep Linux's homepage intact while the same is done for Windows? So Linux has its own 'non-synced' homepage, while Windows has its own 'non-synced' homepage?

Thanks in advance.

Firefox options page home page not editable (dropdown does not drop down)

I've been helping my 88-year-old father with his PC. He has Windows 7, Firefox 63, and I'm trying to get it to stop updating because every time it does, it resets things - lately it's been asking him for his Firefox password, but he doesn't use any server-based Firefox features, so it's only causing confusion. He does NOT need to log onto Firefox sync.

While I was fixing his settings, I noticed he had his home page set to Facebook, whereas previously, I had set it to the Firefox default for him ("New Tab" still uses the default Firefox page). When I clicked on the dropdown to change from "Custom URLs", nothing dropped down, and I was unable to change the home page. Eventually, I reset all of his settings to default and restarted. Then he told me he actually did want Facebook for his home page, and now I couldn't set it back - clicking on the dropdown to change from "Default", again, nothing dropped down. I googled and found another way to change the home page by dragging a tab to the house icon on the page, and that worked, but I do not understand why I am not able to change the home page setting using the options page.

Note: I have been fiddling with adding a policies.json file to try to prevent unwanted prompts for Firefox sync password and unwanted prompts for updating the browser. On the thought that that might have been causing a problem, I removed the line that disables update checks, but that didn't make any difference.
