Whatever I try (refresh Firefox, set home page, ...), every time I open my Firefox browser, my file directory structure is displayed instead of my preferred home page. I'm running Linux RHEL 7.3.

check the Exec= line in your {/usr,~/.local}/share/applications/*-firefox-*.desktop

Okay, it says:

Exec=sh -c 'firejail --noprofile --env=LD_PRELOAD="${LD_PRELOAD- }"

Any idea what to do next?

contact redhat

untill then you could start firefox from the terminal unless there is a redhat alias for that too or just replace that Exec= with Exec=firefox %U in ~/.local/share/applications/*firefox*.desktop
