Firefox start page opens up as new tab whenever my home page opens

I've changed the default home page to another website.

Whenever Firefox starts up, two tabs will open ie. my homepage and Firefox start page. While browsing on any tab, if I click ALT+HOME to go to homepage, a new tab opens again for the firefox start page.

Why is this happening? It didn't happen with older firefox browser versions.

Re: Firefox start page opens up as new tab whenever my home page opens

I have the same issue and figured it out. When you (and I) set our home pages, the Firefox start page was open also. Firefox takes every tab you have open when you set your home page. So close all but 1 tab and go to your desired home page and set it through the Tools>options>General tab. That fixed it for me.
