Every time I open up Firefox, the update checking window opens first, then I get 2 tabs that open. One is my home page, the other is the page that opens after a new version of Firefox is installed. How can I get the Firefox update page to stop opening? I had the same thing happen with the "Download Helper" add-on. The only way I could get it to stop was to disable it. I am running windows 7 and Firefox 9.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please check if there are more than one entry in Tools (Alt + T) > Options > General > Home Page:.
Page Info Tools (Alt + T) > Page Info, Right-click > View Page Info
There is not. When I open Firefox, the first thing that happens is a window opens up that says it is checking for add-on compatibility, then the 2 tabs open up. One is my home page, the other is the "Hooray! you have the latest version of Firefox" or something like that.
Please see if there's an updates.xml file in the Firefox installation directory and delete it.
These are the only update references I could find: update.locale LOCALE file updater Application updater Configuration settings
Should I do anything with these?
Besides the update tab opening up with my homepage tab every time I open FF, I also cannot save any preference changes. So I followed the instructions for "Corrupt preferences file" and that did not work. I don't know what else to do.
